City unions should look to the auto companies on how to face a financial crisis and understand they won’t be asked to continue sacrificing indefinitely, former Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer said Friday.

In an interview with the Free Press, Archer called on UAW President Bob King and auto executives to get involved in Detroit’s fiscal crisis by talking to city unions about what they went through and the benefitsthey’re now reaping.

“What the municipal unions have not been able to see is that the light at the end of the tunnel is not an oncoming train,” he said.
