Industry analysts say the 23-day strike by General Motors workers has cost the company production of 165,000 cars and trucks.     

The strike by 49,000 United Auto Workers began on September 16th.      


General Motors made another offer Monday and talks continued on Tuesday, but were hung up on large economic issues.      

The union wants hourly wage increases versus lump-sum payments favored by the company.       

Both sides also separated over pensions.
