The chief executives of Detroit's automakers and the head of the United Auto Workers plan to meet with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to discuss the financial status of the struggling industry.

Two people familiar with the plans for the meeting say the executives of General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler LLC, along with the union's president, will meet with Pelosi in Washington on Thursday to talk about the credit crisis and access to government funding for the auto industry.

The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because the meeting is private.

Pelosi has called for Congress to enact a stimulus program to shore up the sinking economy during its lame-duck session.
