The United Auto Workers rejected another offer from General Motors Co. that could have brought the national strike, now in its 16th day, to a close.

The proposal came at 9:45 p.m. Monday, but "did not satisfy your contract demands or needs," Terry Dittes, UAW vice president, wrote in a letter to local union leaders Tuesday. The UAW has submitted a counterproposal and is awaiting GM's response, he said.

"There were many areas that came up short like health care, wages, temporary employees, skilled trades and job security to name a few," wrote Dittes, director of the union's GM department. "Additionally, concessionary proposals still remain in the company's proposals as of last night."
