TORONTO, April 3 /CNW/ - After six days of intense bargaining, contract
talks between the CAW bargaining committee and Extendicare Nursing homes broke
off Monday night.
Five CAW locals - 302, 2458, 1120, 504 and 830 - represent 1,200 members
at 10 Extendicare Nursing homes in the Sault Ste. Marie, Oakville, London,
Windsor, Ottawa and Kingston areas.

workplace issues such as health and safety and equity provisions for workers.
