Strike talks fail, Ford losing millions
The strike is over pay and conditions now heading into its second week.
The trade union is demanding wage increases of around 30 % for next year, and says the strike won't end until the rises are granted. Ford, which has called the demands excessive, says around 40 % of the workforce support the strike.
When it is working, the plant produces 300 cars a day and analysts estimate Ford is losing $ US 5 MLN every day it is out of action.
