(Reuters) – General Motors Co <GM.N> chief executive Mary Barra and company president Mark Reuss took part in contract talks with the United Auto Workers union on Tuesday as a strike of 48,000 U.S. hourly workers has gone on for 30 days, a person briefed on the talks said Tuesday.

On Monday, the UAW scheduled a meeting on Thursday to update local union representatives on the status of the talks. The sides have not reached a tentative agreement that would end the strike, but progress has been made.

GM declined to comment.
