  • Insight: GM recalls far from calamity for some dealers who find new customers, business
    The news about deadly crashes linked to a faulty ignition switch, followed by wave upon wave of recalls, did not bode well for General Motors dealers earlier this year. It conjured visions of worried, frustrated drivers pouring onto lots like Raymond Chevrolet, outside of Chicago. Although the script is not what the dealership would have written, GM is delivering sales and service prospects to her door. GM as a whole posted a 2.5 percent increase in sales in the first half of the year, just a step behind the industry average of 4.3 percent.
  • Euro hit, shares subdued after downbeat Ifo
    World shares dipped on Friday having clawed their way back towards all-time highs after a week of largely reassuring economic signals but rising political tensions. European markets opened with the region's main bourses down 0.1 to 0.6 percent as investors digested the bloc's latest sanctions for Russia and a flurry of data from German business confidence to UK growth. Germany's Ifo survey showed there had been hefty fall in business confidence in Europe's biggest economy over the last few weeks, raising worries the region's growth engine could be stuttering.
  • Exclusive: China meat supplier faced claims last year over unethical work practices
    Shanghai Husi Food, the U.S.-owned Chinese food supplier at the center of a meat safety scandal, won a court case earlier this year against a former quality control officer whose claims included that he was made to forge meat production dates. Wang Donglai, who worked at Shanghai Husi Food from 2007 to 2013, sought around 38,000 yuan ($6,100) in compensation for damage to his health from exposure to chlorine used as a cleaning agent by the meat processor. He also sought to terminate his contract at Shanghai Husi, claiming he was forced to work overtime and made to do "unethical work" that violated food safety laws, court documents showed. At his hearing last October, Wang said he was unwilling to illegally forge dates at the plant, adding that he repeatedly urged his employer to change a practice which he said violated food safety laws and hurt consumer interests, according to court documents seen by Reuters.
