Arrests mar talks in American Axle strike

DETROIT -- Talks between the striking United Auto Workers union and parts supplier American Axle and Manufacturing Holdings Inc. continued Friday as the work stoppage appeared headed into its third week.

The talks continued as police arrested two people Friday morning outside the company's Detroit headquarters on disorderly conduct charges.

Company spokeswoman Renee Rogers said bargaining took place Friday, but she did not know if the full negotiating teams were present for both sides. She also did not know if any progress had been made. Only the lead bargainers for both sides met on Thursday, she said.

A message was left for UAW spokesman Roger Kerson.

About 3,600 UAW workers at five American Axle plants in Michigan and New York left their jobs for the picket lines on Feb. 26.

The resulting parts shortage forced GM to close all or part of 28 plants, affecting more than 37,000 hourly workers.
