United Auto Workers (UAW) union members picket outside the General Motors Flint Assembly Plant in Flint, Michigan September 25, 2007. The 2-day-old nationwide strike against General Motors Corp by the UAW union was already being felt across borders on Tuesday, threatening production in Mexico and shutting down Canadian plants, as both sides resumed bargaining. The strike began on Monday after 10 weeks of contract talks seen as crucial to GM's survival as it restructures money-losing U.S. operations and tries to free itself from a health-care obligation of more than $50 billion.
