Oracle Corp and VMware Inc on Monday announced a deal designed to resolve years of tension over how Oracle handles technical support for VMware users and make it easier for them to move to Oracle's cloud computing service. Oracle is competing against Amazon.com Inc and Microsoft Corp to offer cloud services, where businesses use Oracle's data centres to handle their computing needs. In recent years, cloud providers have worked to woo large businesses that still run their own data centres to move some or all of that work to the cloud.
An all-electric pickup truck and an advanced battery system will be part of the $7 billion that General Motors Co has pledged to invest in the United States as parts of contract talks with the United Auto Workers. The automaker and the union were continuing talks late on Monday to resolve a strike by 48,000 hourly workers that shut down GM's highly profitable U.S. operations. GM said on Saturday it would make investments in eight facilities in four states, but did not specify timing, location or products other than the electric pickup and a battery cell plant.
More than 49,000 union auto workers at General Motors are walking picket lines, silencing more than 50 company factories and parts depots in a strike over contract negotiations.

Negotiators for General Motors Co and the United Auto Workers were continuing talks Monday afternoon to resolve a strike that shut down the automaker's highly profitable U.S. operations. The UAW on Sunday launched the first company-wide strike at GM in 12 years, saying negotiations towards a new national agreement covering about 48,000 hourly workers had hit an impasse.

Workers left factories and formed picket lines shortly after midnight in the dispute over a new four-year contract. The union's top negotiator said in a letter to the company that the strike could have been averted had the company made its latest offer sooner.

The United Auto Workers said that the strike started early Monday as union leaders demanded GM “recognise the contributions” workers have made to “create a healthy, profitable industry”. The UAW is asking GM's nearly 46,000 US factory workers to stop working until further notice. In the wake of the financial crisis, unions had given the big carmakers concessions in their contracts, such as cuts to their healthcare and pension bills, helping GM reduce costs as it clawed its way out of bankruptcy.
