Nov 13 (Reuters) - United Auto Workers said it extended the deadline for the ratification of a labor agreement with General Motors Co by a week to Nov. 20.

A majority of United Auto Workers members voted in favor of a new four-year contract with General Motors, but the pact had not been ratified yet because skilled trades workers voted it down. (

GM and the union have been engaged in talks since July.
