The reason we're here without an agreement has been pretty clear to our bargaining team... We have not had an honest bargaining partner."

More than 100 firefighters and emergency workers in southern Spain searched Monday for a 2-year-old toddler who fell into a narrow and deep borehole.
Rescuers have been unable to get into the borehole, which is no wider than 25 centimeters (10 inches) in diameter and is believed to go down more than 100 meters (330 feet). On Monday afternoon they were deploying three different approaches to reach the bottom of the well but without damaging its structure or blocking it with soil and rocks, local authorities said.
According to rescuers, the boy fell into the hole early Sunday afternoon after walking away from his parents while playing in a mountainous area near the town of Totalan, northeast of the city of Malaga.
