General Motors and United Auto Workers take break

Contract negotiations between General Motors Corp. and the United Auto Workers took a break early Monday amid optimism that they are getting closer to an agreement.

Negotiations came to an end just before 3 a.m. (0700 GMT) after a marathon 16-hour session on Sunday and Monday, GM spokesman Tom Wickham said.

"GM and the UAW have agreed to take a break, and talks will resume later this morning. We aren't going to comment or speculate on the nature or content of the discussions," Wickham said.

He said that all employees were expected to report for work at their scheduled times on Monday.
