Concessions

We were informed by the CAW leadership that we will be expected to make mjor concessions to keep any car production in Oshawa: "The Company made it very clear that some major changes have to be made as
to the way they run the business in Oshawa or they will look elsewhere to do business, as Canada and the USA are the two most expensive countres in which to build vehicles"
If we agree to concessions, we stand a good chance in reversing the announced closure of car plant #2. otherwise, lights out on both car plants and only truck will remain. The union seems amenable. We find out the details later this week, with a vote to follow.
I suspect they are taking us on before they tackle the much larger UAW...

Good luck, I believe the unions have little if any power left :-( a strike would only just end everyone's pain.

They are also the two countries that generate the most sales for GM & Ford.
