Unifor president to update media on CAMI contract talks Sunday

Unifor president to update media on CAMI contract talks Sundayā€¯

While individual pressure builds on the workers, GM faces the reality it had only a 53-day inventory of the popular crossover vehicle made at Cami, the Equinox, when the strike began.

Cami autoworkers can not and will not compete with Mexico, Unifor President Jerry Dias told more than 2,000 striking union members who gathered at the picket line here Sunday.

Unifor is slated to provide an additional update on the talks to its membership Sunday when its national president joins the picket line in Ingersoll.

"The successful conclusion of these talks is vital to the future of the entire community", Dias said in a statement issued Saturday.

The talks had moved Thursday to Detroit where General Motors is headquartered, after days of negotiations on this side of the border generated little movement.

The union said it met with the heads of GM's North American Manufacturing and Finance. "We expressed our concerns around our outstanding issues, such as Job Security, Economics and Contract Language", the statement says.

It also said GM responded late Friday, but the company did not address its issues.

The 2,800 CAMI workers have been on strike since September 17.

The impasse between Unifor and GM appears to be centered around job security. The union has been asking for a letter guaranteeing production of the Chevrolet Equinox crossover vehicle will not be shifted to another plant. These commitments are stemming from the fact GM recently moved production of the GMC Terrain from the CAMI plant to a plant in Mexico, resulting in 400 fewer jobs at CAMI.
