Employees at Chrysler are the only Canadian Auto Workers still waiting on a new contract. Negotiators for the CAW and General Motors reached a tentative settlement last night, based on a similar deal reached with Ford earlier in the week.
The deal leaves Chrysler the only one of the Detroit Three automakers still in negotiations. And CAW president Ken Lewenza says it’s time for Chrysler to get serious. He says Chrysler workers have had a “dark cloud” of uncertainty hanging over their heads for too long and they want to focus on making automobiles.
Lewenza can call a strike at Chrysler on 24 hours’ notice.
