(Canadian Auto Workers) CAW threatens to strike at Detroit 3 automakers

Source: CBC

The Canadian Auto Workers turned up the heat in negotiations with the Detroit Three automakers on Wednesday by saying its members must be ready to strike at all of the companies.

"It is our hope and intention to reach an agreement with at least one of the three companies before the deadline," the CAW said in a leaflet distributed to members. "We must be prepared, though, to shut down operations at all three, should we be unable to reach an agreement."

The union said it has strike mandates from its members at the Canadian operations of all three of the automakers, but has not designated a strike target.

“The corporations are refusing to add any costs whatsoever – instead they insist on cutting costs from our existing agreements,” the union said in the leaflet.

1. Can't believe General Motors is acting like this.

Can't we make them do something to accomodate the workers?
