May 17, 2009, 8:00 AM EST
Restructuring talks between the Canadian Auto Workers union and General Motors continue in Toronto through out the weekend.
"Our CAW negotiating team continues to work hard to reach an agreement with General Motors," said CAW President Ken Lewenza. "We will continue our talks as we work towards reaching a tentative agreement that we can bring back to our membership for ratification."
"We have made some progress, however, there are a number of key issues that remain unresolved at this point," Lewenza said. "Unlike previous rounds of negotiations, the situation today is more complex because of the role of government included in the process."
