of the CAW Auto Council.

    Two weeks ago, the CAW National Executive Board held an emergency meeting
where the board supported the Magna agreement, voting 16-1 in favour. Today's
meeting is a precursor to the CAW Council to be held in early December where
CAW President Buzz Hargrove has advocated a full debate take place.
