Canadian Auto Workers Want Penalties for Layoffs

The Canadian Auto Workers union will ask the government this week to impose a penalty of C$5,000 ($3,194) a worker on any company that lays off more than 1,000 employees in a community, the Globe and Mail reported.

The penalty will be C$2,500 a worker on companies laying off 500 to 1,000 employees, the Globe said. The money will be deposited in a fund that will compensate the workers.

The union will present its proposals this week at a Toronto convention to prepare for negotiations with the Canadian units of Ford Motor Co., DaimlerChrysler AG and General Motors Corp., the paper said. The three carmakers are planning to close a plant each in Canada. The negotiations will cover about 45,000 workers, the Globe said.

The union will also propose the federal and provincial governments spend C$1 billion to build a bridge between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, and other transportation projects.
