Talks between striking Cami Assembly workers and General Motors have resumed, more than a week into the strike by 2,800 at the Ingersoll car factory.
“The master bargaining committee, along with our Unifor national representatives, met with the company earlier (Tuesday),” the union local said Wednesday on its website.
“The company provided a response to the package we had put forward to them this past Sunday. Some progress has been made, therefore the master bargaining committee, along with our national representatives, will be moving back into the hotel to continue talks.”
The two sides are meeting in Woodstock.
The union promised to continued to update members.
The strike, the first at the plant in 25 years, began Sept. 17 and has already rippled far in the auto parts and trucking industries, idling many who supply and service the plant.
Job security remains one of the key issues in the labour dispute.
