Unless you know someone that works at CAT, we don't know the complete picture of benefits, but there again, what ever it was it had been worked out with the two parties until one party says I quit! Fine, CAT should have been given more of a time lapse for these workers
Nope...contract termination provisions are spelled out loud and clear in the fine print. You know, the contract that union labor lives to die for.
and foreign companies shouldn't be able to sell thier produce in Canada until, all the benefits, clean up cost etc. is completed.
But it's OK for Canadian mining companies to scar the earth and communities in other nations, right?
....The CAT workers and the CAW have a tough job ahead trying to settle for a closure settlement, and if its anything like Navistar, CAW will be years trying to get it and again no help from governments.
CAT eats union rubes for breakfast...has for years. The CAW isn't big enough or bad enough.
