UAW, GM talks take ‘turn for the worse’

News

(CNN) – Talks between the United Auto Workers (UAW) and General Motors (GM) “have taken a turn for the worse,” according to the union’s chief negotiator.

It suggests no immediate end is in sight for the auto industry’s longest strike in decades, which is now in its third week.

The setback in talks comes after several days of reported progress between the two sides as they work to reach a new four-year deal.

With nearly 50,000 GM workers on strike, this is the largest work stoppage at any US business since the last time autoworkers were on strike at GM in 2007.

Despite the setback, the UAW said the two sides continued to talk on Sunday.
