Unifor has tabled an offer to General Motors over the weekend in an attempt to end the weeklong strike at CAMI in Ingersoll, Ontario.

About 2,800 workers took to the picket line last Sunday, choosing to strike over job security and future investment into one of GM's most productive plants.

"We have tabled a very comprehensive package to resolve issues and end our strike. The proposal addresses our outstanding items; such as job security, economics, and contract language.

"The ball is now in the Company's court. We await their response," the union said in a statement posted to the Unifor Local 88 website.

Job security is at the crux of the strike after GM shifted production of the GMC Terrain to Mexico earlier this year. The Terrain is mechanically identical to the CAMI-produced Chevrolet Equinox, which is also assembled at two of GM's Mexican plants. CAMI is the largest source of GM's hottest-selling crossover, producing roughly 60-percent of all Equinoxes.

GM has acknowledged the new offer in a bulletin posted this morning. "We are again engaged in discussions with Unifor and continue to work toward a new competitive agreement."
