CANADA-AUTO UNIONS
(2008-05-19)
(wgvu) - CANADIAN AUTO WORKERS AT GENERAL MOTORS AND
CHRYSLER HAVE RATIFIED A NEW LABOR AGREEMENT.
THAT WRAPS UP THIS YEAR'S ROUND OF NEGOTIATIONS BETWEEN THE CAW
AND THE MAJOR AUTOMAKERS.
CAW MEMBERS AT CHRYSLER'S THREE ONTARIO-BASED PLANTS VOTED 87
PERCENT IN FAVOR OF THE NEW AGREEMENT, MAKING IT THE STRONGEST
APPROVAL RATING AMONG THE THREE GIANT AUTO COMPANIES.
GM WORKERS VOTED 84 PERCENT IN FAVOR OF ITS NEW AGREEMENT, AND
FORD WORKERS VOTED 67 PERCENT IN SUPPORT OF ITS NEW CONTRACT TWO
WEEKS AGO.
CAW PRESIDENT BUZZ HARGROVE SAYS THE STRONG APPROVAL BY THE
MEMBERSHIP IS EVIDENCE THAT THE UNION DID THE RIGHT THING IN
NEGOTIATING AN EARLY SETTLEMENT.
THE UNION REACHED HISTORICALLY EARLY TENTATIVE AGREEMENTS
THURSDAY WITH BOTH GM AND CHRYSLER, REPLACING CONTRACTS THAT EXPIRE
IN SEPTEMBER.
