A dramatic turn Thursday in the nearly two-week-old strike by Cami workers ended in suspense, their union waiting to hear how its appeal to top brass at General Motors in Detroit goes down.
A London trucking firm has $4 million in tractor-trailers stranded behind picket lines and has laid off 100 workers due to the Cami strike, a company executive says.
Striking workers at the Cami Assembly plant reached out with a new offer to GM Canada Thursday morning.
Job losses at suppliers to the strikebound Cami Assembly plant will soon exceed the numbers of workers on the picket line.
The strike by Cami Assembly workers is a "gamble," union leaders were quick to admit Monday, but they are rolling the dice on ensuring they have work for the future, they are quick to add.
