NPR's Monica Brady reports that talks on ending the two-week-old Teamsters strike against United Parcel Service continued today. President Clinton said yesterday he thinks a settlement is near, but a spokesman for the Teamsters says there's no reason for such optimism. The union has begun a campaign to put more pressure on UPS. Teamsters are handing out leaflets at stores such as Wal-Mart and Toys-R-Us that have urged President Clinton to end the strike.
