SHARE UAW, DaimlerChrysler reach tentative contract

DETROIT (AP) — The United Auto Workers union said early today it reached a tentative, four-year contract agreement with automaker DaimlerChrysler AG and will continue to negotiate with General Motors Corp. and Ford Motor Co. after current contracts expired at midnight Sunday.

Details of the tentative agreement weren't being released.

The UAW had hoped to reach simultaneous pacts with the Big Three automakers, but General Motors Corp. and Ford Motor Co. haven't reach an agreement yet.
