General Motors Corp., in documents submitted Friday to Delphi Corp.'s bankruptcy judge, said it has not agreed to subsidize hourly wages of Delphi workers, the Detroit Free Press reported.

GM said Delphi's gradual pay reduction proposal to the UAW on March 24 and 25 misleads others into thinking GM already agreed to participate in Delphi's offer, the Free Press said.

The only thing GM has agreed to is a work-force attrition plan that offers early retirement to 13,000 hourly Delphi workers or gives them a chance at securing one of 5,000 jobs back at GM plants, the Free Press said.

GM's comments Friday were an official response to Delphi's motion to cancel union contracts and eliminate retiree medical and life insurance benefits, the Free Press said.

Delphi's attorneys will respond in a bankruptcy hearing May 9 and 10 in New York, where they will try to get permission to void union contracts and impose wage cuts, the Free Press said.
