Negotiations between the Canadian Auto Workers’ Union and General Motors, Ford and Chrysler are becoming more contentious. With a September 17th strike deadline approaching, the union says little progress is being made. Chris Buckley, president of local 222 representing GM Oshawa employees, says they’re looking to recoup some of the sacrifices made during the auto crisis. However, he says GM is instead asking workers to give up more. Buckley says the locals have begun to set up strike committees in preparation. It’s their goal to negotiate an agreement without a labour disruption.
