GM, Unifor set to resume talks

INGERSOLL, Ont.—General Motors and the union representing about 2,500 striking workers at the CAMI assembly plant in Ingersoll, Ont. were expected to resume talks today aimed at ending a strike that's into its fourth week.

The transit station is in the city's northwest near the Bow River valley.
