DETROIT, Michigan (AFP) - Luxury automaker BMW said Saturday it had agreed to a contract extension for employees at a California warehouse following a union dispute that had threatened to go national.

We had a good discussion with the Teamsters and we intend to extend the contract for six months to provide the time to address the substantive issues, said company spokesman Tom Kowaleski.

The Teamsters, a nationwide union with some 1. 4 million members, had said the company planned to lay off the workers at the end of August before re-opening the facility with a lower-paid workforce.
