LONDON, ON, Feb. 21, 2012 /CNW/ - The CAW has negotiated a tentative
plant closure settlement with Electro-Motive Canada. The settlement
covers approximately 465 CAW Local 27 members employed at the company's
London facility. Members are scheduled to vote on the settlement on
Thursday morning (February 23).
No details of the agreement will be released until after the closure
settlement is ratified.
The closure settlement comes nearly two months after Electro-Motive
management locked out its employees, demanding a 50 per cent cut in
wages as well as other massive contract concessions.
Electro-Motive announced the closure of the London locomotive facility
on February 3.
