SYDNEY (AP) — With the usual touristy things — Opera House, Harbour Bridge and meeting mascot-sized koalas — out of the way, the California Golden Bears and Hawaii were set to continue their practice sessions in Australia on Wednesday ahead of the opening college football game of the season.
By Andreas Cremer BERLIN (Reuters) - Volkswagen and two of its parts suppliers on Tuesday resolved a contract dispute that had hit output at more than half of the carmaker's German plants and threatened to undermine its recovery from a diesel emissions scandal. After more than 20 hours of negotiations that went on through the night, VW said it had settled its differences with CarTrim, which makes seats, and ES Automobilguss, which produces cast iron parts needed to make gearboxes, but gave no details. The conflict had threatened VW's profitability following last year's diesel emissions test cheating scandal and also risked hurting hundreds of other VW suppliers.
