A grievance gambit that the UAW is running at Ford Motor Co.

during the home stretch of national contract negotiations is a risky one for UAW President Bob King.

If this blows up in his face it could cost Ford a strike by hourly workers and damage King's initiative to organize the U.S. assembly plants of German and Asian automakers.
