CAW wants more work at GM plants, or no deal

The union, which represents about 13,000 GM workers, is looking for long-term transmission work at the Windsor operation, extra parts output at plants in St. Catharines and additional models at a new flexible manufacturing complex in Oshawa.

GM will build the Camaro sports car at the Oshawa complex but has not identified any other models for production.

The company expects the Camaro to generate significant demand, but the complex needs other cars to justify its huge investment.

In recent months, local union officials have said they fear GM will use commitments for any further models in Oshawa as a bargaining chip in talks.
