Deadline looms for strike action at Ingersoll's CAMI plant

Deadline looms for strike action at Ingersoll's CAMI plant”

Workers at the CAMI plant in Ingersoll say they'll leave the assembly line for the picket line if they can't come to a new contract agreement with General Motors.

Van Boekel said talks have broken off and the two sides are far apart.

Unifor members have also been dissatisfied that GM opted to move production of the GMC Terrain from the CAMI plant to an assembly plant in Mexico.

About 2,800 members of Unifor Local 88 met Sunday morning at the London Convention Centre for what was originally planned as a ratification vote. Members were encouraged to sign up for picket duty at the meeting. "There will be hundreds of people out there at the plant tonight". The two parties have been in talks for the last several weeks, but talks have been contentious as GM laid off some of its workforce at the Ingersoll, Ontario just prior to the commencement of negotiations.

"It sends chills down your back knowing that these workers appreciate the hard work we have done and have faith in us to get what's best for them". "We have a contract in place until 11 p.m. Clock is ticking, but we are a long way apart". If they don't want to talk, no extensions at 11 p.m.

Van Boekel adds, "We're not backing down".

"At GM Canada, we are proud of the experience, quality and productivity of our CAMI workforce and will work with our Union partners toward another innovative and mutually beneficial competitive agreement".

A panel was held at the London Convention Centre on Sunday, where Unifor Local 88 officials explained the current situation to CAMI employees.

The union is seeking contract language that would designate Cami as what is known as the lead plant for the Equinox, meaning it would be the first to receive new investment needed to assemble a redesigned version of the vehicle.
