American Axle reports progress in talks with union
(2008-05-12)
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - A spokeswoman for American Axle and Manufacturing
Holdings Inc. says company and union negotiators made a lot of
progress in bargaining Sunday.
But Renee Rogers would not talk about specifics of the
negotiations or say if the company and United Auto Workers are
close to a deal.
About 3,600 workers have been on strike since Feb. 26 in a
dispute over the company's demand to cut wages and benefits to
match its competition. The strike has crippled General Motors
Corp.'s production of pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles.
UAW President Ron Gettelfinger said Saturday that negotiators
were close until the company proposed closing another factory in
New York. Gettelfinger called that an insult.
Negotiations continued on Monday.
