TENTATIVE AGREEMENT REACHED IN CAW-CHRYSLER AUTO TALKS

 TORONTO, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- In a groundbreaking tentative settlement, the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) union has reached an agreement with the Chrysler Corp. for a three year collective agreement covering 10,500 workers.
 "This is a significant step forward for our members and all working people in Canada," said Buzz Hargrove, CAW president. "It shows that if you fight back against the corporate agenda of wage cuts and downsizing, you can make headway on important issues for workers."
 The agreement includes improvement in wages, pensions and income security. It also includes new time off to reduce work time and limit unnecessary overtime which will create employment in the industry.
 "When business and governments are calling for deficit cutting and touting the jobless recovery, it is important to show that progress can be made allowing workers to retire with dignity and creating employment."
 Ratification votes will be held in all locations on Sunday, Sept. 19.
 Details will be released at a news conference Wednesday, Sept. 15 at 10:30 a.m. at the Delta Chelsea Hotel in Toronto, Wren Room B and C.
 If ratified, this agreement will set the pattern for subsequent negotiations at Ford and General Motors.
