CHATHAM, Ont. — Workers and management at the International Truck and Engine Co. plant here are no closer to ending a one week labor disruption.
After one week of pickets, there is not even a sign that talks between truck maker and the Canadian Auto Workers Union will resume any time soon, according to Bloomberg News.
Workers at the plant walked out June 3 after their contract with International expired and an agreement could not be reached on a new one. The company has asked workers to help them find an additional $14 million in cost cuts to keep the plant viable.
International has ramped up production at its Escobedo, Mexico plant to help gain leverage on the strikers.
