Union for GM workers says a lot of issues unresolved as strike deadline nears

Durham, ON, Canada / channel12

The union that represents auto workers at General Motors says a lot of issues remain unresolved in negotiations with the company, but progress is being made.
In a memo updating its talks with GM, Unifor says it’s still trying to secure further product investment before a strike deadline set for Monday at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Unifor, which represents about 23,000 auto workers in Canada, selected GM as its target company in the opening round of contract discussions with the so-called Detroit Three automakers.
The union said any deal reached with GM would serve as a template for negotiations with the other two automakers, Ford and Fiat Chrysler.
Going into the discussions, union president Jerry Dias said he was aware negotiations with GM would be tough _ but that was precisely why the company was chosen.
A focal point of the negotiations was securing more work at GM’s plant in Oshawa, Ont., where the company employs 2,500 unionized workers.
