This from the Ann Arbor News:

“Borders, strikers make little progress

Borders Group and striking workers at its downtown Ann Arbor store bargained on Tuesday, but significant issues remain, and the two sides will return to the table Dec. 30.

Union spokesmen Hal Brannan and Tom Rekuc said they and the company made progress on lesser issues, but at 5 p.m., before the talk turned to wages, Borders representatives packed up and left. “Borders stalled all day, promising to discuss wages,” said a written statement from strikers.

In its press release, Borders said negotiations were productive, that significant progress had been made.

The strike at the Liberty Street store began Nov. 8.”
