BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- An auto workers union has scheduled a vote over whether to authorize a strike at the Bowling Green General Motors Assembly Plant.

United Auto Workers 2164 will hold the ballot Tuesday. Union President Eldon Renaud told The Daily News that the issues involved deal with safety and the elimination of certain quality control positions, which the union thinks affects the integrity of the plant's quality procedures. Renaud would not provide further details.

Renaud said the 800 or so union workers have from noon until 6:30 p.m. to cast their ballots.

The plant was closed for more than a year, gearing up and retooling for production of the Stingray that has been on showroom floors since last fall.
