Canada extends deadline for GM union deal to May 31

ATLANTA, May 19 (Reuters) - Talks between General Motors Corp (GM.N) and the Canadian Auto Workers union will continue through May 31, Canadian Industry Minister Tony Clement said on Tuesday.

    GM and the CAW were making progress on some issues, while others were more problematic, Clement told reporters in Atlanta, Georgia.

    Ottawa had set a deadline of May 15 for the two sides to substantially reduce labor costs in order for the company to receive long-term government aid in Canada. (Reporting by Matt Bigg, writing by John McCrank; editing by Peter Galloway)
