GM to accelerate launch schedule
General Motors Co. Chairman Ed Whitacre said the U.S. automaker would accelerate its launch of new cars to make up some ground in lost market share.
Whitacre did not divulge specifics on what products would be let out of the gate ahead of schedule, The Detroit News reported Wednesday.
Whitacre said GM Chief Executive Officer Frederick
Fritz Henderson had the board's
blessing and encouragement. He also said relations with the United Auto Workers union
are going to be quite good going forward.
That is certainly my hope. We're all in this together, he said.
