Also on Monday, GM laid off 415 more workers in Mexico after a nationwide strike by U.S. workers passed the three-week mark, a GM spokesperson told FOX Business.

Mexico is a major sticking point for the union, as GM would not commit on Sunday to moving any production from Mexico to the U.S., including the shuttered Lordstown, Ohio, plant that caught President Trump's attention in March, a source familiar with the negotiations told FOX Business.
The union will "hold the line as long as possible" until GM feels the pressure to move product lines from Mexico to the U.S., the source said.
"We are committed to continuing discussions around the clock to reach a resolution," a GM spokesperson told FOX Business on Sunday.
