Navistar, Canadian Auto Workers Reach Pact

July 15, 2002|Bloomberg News

Navistar International Corp. reached a settlement with the Canadian Auto Workers union, ending a strike at an Ontario truck factory where workers walked out a month and a half ago.

Terms of the two-year agreement weren't disclosed.

About 645 striking workers of CAW Local 127 will vote today, according to a statement by Navistar, the world's fourth-largest truck maker.

Workers began the strike June 1 after Navistar and the CAW failed to agree on $14 million in wage concessions and other cuts at the Chatham, Ontario, heavy-duty-truck plant. Talks ran through the weekend.

The company said last week that the strike was having little effect on its production, since it was on track to boost production at a lower-cost factory in Escobedo, Mexico, to about 58 trucks a day by the end of the month from 31 before the strike.
