MEXICO | General Motors factories resume operations.

The motor plant in the Ramos Arizpe complex in the northern state of Coahuila restarted operations the same day; the transmission and ensemble plants in Ramos Arizpe and all plants in the Silao complex in Guanajuato state, two days later. The factories in San Luis Potosí and Toluca continued work throughout the 40-day strike.
