General Motors Corp. and United Auto Workers negotiators continued national contract talks as costly strikes by 7,550 workers at two plants were putting increased pressure on the auto maker. Workers at GM's Janesville, Wis., truck assembly plant and Indianapolis metal-stamping plant walked off the job Tuesday, citing disagreements with the company in local contract discussions. The walkouts will cost GM several million dollars a day in profit, analysts said.

In yet another twist in Wisconsin's bitter fight over unions, a judge Thursday struck down the Republican-sponsored bill to strip most public workers of their collective bargaining rights, moving the battle to the state Supreme Court. Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi ruled that the Legislature violated the state's open meetings law in approving the bill championed by Republican Gov. Scott Walker that sparked massive protests and the flight of 14 Democratic senators to Illinois in a futile effort to prevent its passage.

More than 7,500 union workers at two key General Motors plants in Indiana and Wisconsin walked off the job late Tuesday as contract talks between GM and the United Auto Workers continued without a settlement. The walkout, which could quickly paralyze some of GM's most profitable operations, comes just a day after the union let an extension of its previous three-year contract lapse and UAW leaders warned that local strikes were possible.
