NEW YORK (AP) — The strike against General Motors by 49,000 United Auto Workers entered its second week today with progress reported in negotiations but no clear end in sight.

Bargainers met all weekend and returned to talks this morning as the strike entered its eighth day.

A person briefed on the negotiations says they’re haggling about wages and profit sharing, new product for factories that GM wants to close, a faster route to full wages for new hires, and use of temporary workers. The person didn’t want to be identified because details of the bargaining are confidential.
