Saturday 02:25 GMT

CBS 2.02% head Leslie Moonves is challenging the company’s decision last month to deny him a severance package of $120 million, CBS said Thursday, a move that will further prolong a monthslong drama at the media conglomerate.

That was resolved at the same time Mr. Moonves resigned: National Amusements agreed not to push a merger of CBS and Viacom for two years, but a merger can still take place earlier than that if the two companies on their own decide to pursue it.

Racist threats continue at GM’s Ohio plant where nooses were found, says lawyer

Saturday 20:54 GMT

Workers who sued General Motors after nooses and racist graffiti were found at its largest U.S. transmission plant nearly two years ago are still facing racial harassment, their attorney said on Thursday.

In the federal lawsuit filed last year, workers described finding three nooses attached to the plant ceiling in March 2017 and then two more nooses in the following months. Nazi symbols and “whites only” were written in the plant’s restrooms and white workers would call black employees racist names, the lawsuit said.
