Today: CAW to make business case for St. Thomas Sterling Truck plant to Daimler



    TORONTO, Oct. 21 /CNW/ - CAW President Ken Lewenza and local union
leaders from the Sterling Truck plant in St. Thomas, Ontario will be meeting
today with executives from Daimler AG in Windsor to make a business case for
the continued production at the facility.
    The meeting will take place from approximately 10 -11 a.m. at the

    
    Radisson Hotel in Windsor, Ontario
    333 Riverside Drive West

    Lewenza and local union leaders will be available for comment after the

workers, most of who are represented by CAW Local 1001.
