Talks to resume today in GM CAMI plant strike
General Motors and the union representing about 2,500 striking workers at the CAMI assembly plant in Ingersoll, are expected to resume talks today aimed at ending a strike.
The members of Unifor Local 88 walked off the job Sept. 17 as negotiators worked to have GM designate the CAMI plant as the lead producer of the Equinox SUV, which is also produced in Mexico.
Last week the union said the two sides remained far apart on job security and economic issues.
Ontario economic development minister Brad Duguid is urging both sides to settle, noting the dispute is now rippling through Ontario's supply chain economy.
Over 200, GM workers in St. Catharines and 180 workers at ARL Spencer in Niagara Falls have been off the job for almost two weeks because of the Cami plant strike.
