Canadian Auto Union
(2008-05-05)
(wgvu) - The Canadian Auto Workers have voted to ratify a
three-year contract with Ford Motor Co.
CAW spokeswoman Shannon Devine says the membership voted 78
percent in favor on Sunday.
The union says deal keeps Ford's labor costs essentially the
same as they are now.
The deal freezes wages and cuts vacation pay but avoids changes
to base wages. It also prevents the two-tier wage system used in
the U.S., where new hires would be paid about half the hourly wages
of older employees.
The union expects GM and Chrysler to accept similar terms.
Negotiations with GM start Monday and talks with Chrysler begin
Tuesday.
