The Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) union is believed to be leaning toward General Motors of Canada Ltd. as a strike target. The union formally begins Big Three contract talks July 16 in Toronto. Established in 1985, the CAW has never targeted GM. Ford of Canada was its last target in 1999, but a settlement was reached without strike action. Wages and retirement packages top the union’s list of issues. Ford talks launch July 17, followed by DaimlerChrysler Canada Ltd. on July 18.
