Executives from the organizations in recent times tentatively settled on the timeline pursuing talks with United Automobile Employees (UAW) leaders and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s business office, the Journal reported on Monday, citing people common with the ideas.

The head of the UAW union final 7 days warned it was “much too before long and much too risky” to reopen automobile vegetation and Michigan’s financial system in early May, citing dangers to employees.

The organizations are doing work with the union on drawing up protection protocols for lowering exposure hazard for employees, but have not finalized all those conditions nevertheless, in accordance to the WSJ report.

GM, Ford, Fiat Chrysler and UAW did not quickly reply to Reuters requests for comment.
