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, Ford. and Chrysler, along with the union's president, will meet with Pelosi in Washington 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.
