The United Auto Workers (UAW) union's top negotiator in talks with General Motors Co (GM) to resolve a more than three-week strike said late Tuesday a key issue separating the two sides is job security.

"We have made it clear that there is no job security for us when GM products are made in other countries for the purpose of selling them here in the USA.," UAW Vice President Terry Dittes wrote in a letter to UAW officials on the 23th day of the strike.

"We believe that the vehicles GM sells here should be built here. We don't understand GM's opposition to this proposition."
