American Axle reports contract talks stalled

DETROIT American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings Inc. said yesterday that talks with the United Auto Workers aimed at settling a three-month strike had stalled since Sunday.

The company said negotiations were snagged on health-care benefits and supplemental unemployment benefits. A UAW spokesman had no immediate comment.

About 3,650 UAW-represented workers have been on strike at five American Axle plants in Michigan and New York since late February.

The work stoppage has shut down much of General Motors Corp. s North American production of trucks and large sport utility vehicles because American Axle supplies components for those vehicles.
