American Axle and UAW Talking Again  

I'm hoping this is a positive piece of news from CNN Money

The scheduled meeting comes after American Axle made some moves to try to speed up the slow pace of talks. The strike has crippled pickup truck and SUV production at General Motors Corp. (GM) and has started to affect the auto maker's car production.

One labor analyst said the meeting between the two top officials is a significant development, as the strike has lasted longer and gotten more acrimonious than many thought it would.

"Essentially, they're meeting to get this back on track," said Harley Shaiken, a labor professor at the University of California Berkeley. "That doesn't mean a settlement is imminent. But it means both sides are concerned enough to try to discuss it at the highest levels."


Here's to hoping there's an end to this strike soon.
