DETROIT, Oct 6 (Reuters) - Talks for a new four-year labor contract between General Motors Co and its striking workers cooled after the United Auto Workers rejected the largest U.S. automaker's latest offer on Sunday.
GM made an offer to the union that basically repeated one the UAW had previously rejected, Terry Dittes, the UAW vice president in charge of the GM department, said in a letter to members.
"These negotiations have taken a turn for the worse," he said.
GM officials could not immediately be reached for comment. (Reporting by Ben Klayman; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
