Chrysler and C-A-W Back to Bargaining
It's back to the barganing table for the C-A-W and Chrysler.
The two sides will meet on Monday in the hope that the automaker will follow in the footsteps of Ford and GM and work out a tentative deal with the union.
Meantime, it's a done deal with Ford. Six hundred new jobs will be created at the Oakville assembly plant as a result of the new contract worked out between the C-A-W and Ford. That after 82 percent of the 3000 workers who voted, ratified the deal on Sunday.
The agreement Ford workers accepted has no increases to wages or changes to pension plans for existing employees. Each worker will get $2,000 a year in the second, third and fourth years to cover cost-of-living increases, plus a $3,000 ratification bonus.
Voting on a similar package with GM will happen on Wednesday.
