CAW to Resume Formal Negotiations with Ford Motor Company October 26
October 8, 2009, 4:23 PM EST
The CAW will be resuming formal contract talks with Ford Motor Company on October 26. The union will be bringing in its entire CAW-Ford master bargaining committee for the discussions.
The two sides are attempting to reach a cost-cutting agreement which would well position the company's Canadian facilities for future investment.
"We're hopeful that we will be able to reach a new agreement with Ford that will suit our members' need for better job security," said CAW President Ken Lewenza.
Talks have been ongoing since early September on economic issues, with little success.
