POLING: STRIKE CAN BE AVOIDED

Ford Motor Co. Chairman Harold Poling, whose company next month enters contract negotiations with the United Auto Workers union, said Thursday he believes a UAW strike against the nation's No. 2 automaker can be avoided.

"I find it difficult to believe that the Ford Motor Co. and the UAW will not be able to successfully resolve negotiations without a labor disruption," Poling said in an interview.

Nonetheless, recent surveys of UAW members have indicated that workers are willing to strike if their demands for job security are not met in upcoming negotiations.
