The UAW is optimistic that it can complete negotiations for a new labor agreement with Ford by the end of the week, top union officials said late Monday in messages for members.

UAW President Bob King and his staff joined the talks with Ford on Monday after deciding last week to shift the union’s focus from Chrysler to Ford.

“Overall, I am very pleased with where we are at right now,” UAW Vice President Jimmy Settles said in a memo posted on Facebook. “With President Bob King and his staff now fully engaged in negotiations at Ford, I expect the pace to pick up.”
