Published reports say U.A.W. leaders voted Thursday to support discussions helping to ease the more then five billion dollar health care burden on General Motors.

The Detroit News reports G.M. is pushing for concessions from the U.A.W. in the short term.

The paper describes the talks as intense, and labor leaders say concessions may be necessary.

The U.A.W. Vice President, however, says any deal would come without re-opening the current national contract -- set to expire in 2007.

Local union leaders believe the talks may include the price paid for prescription drugs.
