GM and UAW Return to Bargaining

DETROIT (AP) -- A General Motors spokesman say negotiators for the auto maker and the United Auto Workers have returned for their 22nd straight day of bargaining.

Workers walked off the job Monday morning after talks between the two sides bogged down.

The president of the union says job security remains the primary concern as the union seeks guarantees of new vehicles for U.S. plants that would preserve jobs.

The UAW's Web site says striking workers will receive $200 a week plus medical benefits from the UAW's strike fund, which had more than 800 million dollars as of last November.
