Talks to end GM strike in U.S. stall

CKTB-News- GM Strike

This is not what our local GM workers wanted to hear.

Talks between the automaker and striking UAW workers have hit a snag.

An email sent to workers from a top union official suggests negotiations took a turn for the worse on the weekend.

UAW Vice President Terry Dittes says the issue is over product commitments for U.S. factories.

The strike and resulting parts shortage have led to hundreds of layoffs at the St. Catharines and Oshawa plants.

The labour dispute is dragging on into its fourth week.
