Ford Talks Break Down

ST. PETERSBURG -- Negotiations between workers and management of Ford's plant near St. Petersburg broke down Monday, sending a strike at the factory into its sixth day. About 1,500 workers stopped work Nov. 20 in a dispute over wages and night shift hours.

Union and Ford officials met for 1 1/2 hours Monday, and management agreed in principle to raising wages, but did not give concrete figures, union chief Alexei Etmanov said.
