CAMI GM Bargaining Report

CAMI Strike Ends

Yesterday Unifor Members at CAMI in Ingersoll voted to end the strike action and return to work. This means all our laid off members are now back to work.  Many of our members wanted to read the details of the agreement so I have attached the Unifor CAMI GM highlight brochure, click on the links to see the details.   Unifor-Local-88-GM-CAMI-Ingersoll-High-Lights-Brochure.compressed (1)

“In the six months leading into this set of negotiations, GM transferred 100 per cent of GMC Terrain production to Mexico, laid off 425 Local 88 members, and started producing the Chevy Equinox in two plants in Mexico. Given these actions, our demand to protect the Equinox was not only fair and reasonable, it simply made sense. Our members had every reason to make this demand, and did everything to demonstrate it was a demand that deserved to be met. However, at the highest levels of General Motors corporate in Detroit, they coldly refused. As a result and after much internal discussion, we decided that we could not, in good conscience, ask for more economic sacrifice from you in this fight.” Jerry Dias
