Talks between American Axle and Manufacturing Holdings Inc. and striking members of the United Auto Workers union took a turn for the worse yesterday as the company issued a statement that the UAW has rejected wage-and-benefit offers that are better than those paid by competitors. The company also said if the union won’t consider “a U.S. market-competitive labor agreement” it will have to plan for potential closure of some or all of its U.S. facilities.

About 3,600 UAW members have been on strike at American Axle’s five U.S. facilities since Feb. 26.
