INGERSOLL, ON, March 11, 2013 /CNW/ - The Canadian Auto Workers union today
kicks off negotiations with General Motors for a new contract at the company's
CAMI assembly plant in Ingersoll, Ontario.
Collective bargaining talks are taking place months ahead of a contract expiry
between the union and the company, after CAW Local 88 members voted in favour
of the move at a meeting held on February 10, 2013.
Contract talks are scheduled over the next two weeks. Negotiators are working
toward an advanced internal deadline of March 24 to get a deal done.
CAW members will not be in a legal strike position if a deal cannot be reached
by the March 24 deadline. The current collective agreement expires on
September 16, 2013.
CAW Local 88 represents 2500 production and skilled trades workers at the CAMI
facility, producing the Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain vehicles.
