CAW pick Ford as next target

Reuters / September 23, 2002
TORONTO -- Ford of Canada will be the next target in contract negotiations, the Canadian Auto Workers union said on Monday, as the powerful union gears up for another round of bargaining with the country's Big Three automakers.

The announcement comes just one day after 72 percent of the General Motors Canada hourly workers who voted approved a new three-year deal that featured a 3 percent wage increase in each year of first two years of the contract and a 2 percent hike in the third year; a C$1,000 ($633.00) signing bonus; 36 hours in additional paid time off and improved healthcare benefits.

The union now turns its attention solely to Ford in hopes of reaching a similar deal before a strike deadline set for midnight on Oct.1.

But the talks are not expected to go as smoothly as they did for the two sides in the GM talks.

The key issue in the negotiations remains the union's opposition to Ford's planned closing of its Ontario Truck Plant in Oakville, Ontario. The union has vowed to fight aggressively to keep the plant open.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
