Transcript of Canadian Auto Workers Union

History of CAW
Full name: National Automobile, Aerospace, Transportation and General Workers Union of Canada
Began as a division of the UAW in 1937 after a strike at the GM plant in Oshawa(United auto workers)
CAW separated from UAW in 1985
CAW is rooted in Ontario's auto plants (Windsor Oshawa, Brampton, Oakville, St. Catharines)
CAW merged with a number of smaller Unions working its way up to becoming the biggest private sector Union in the country
Canadian Auto Workers Union
Government involvement
CAW voiced strong opposition to Brian Mulroney's government, and towards policies such as the Goods and Services tax and free trade.
CAW is a left wing Union, lending its support to the NDP and BLOC parties of Canada. In recent years under new leadership the Union is now strongly supporting the Liberal party of Canada
Opinion on CAW and unions in Canada
We are for CAW and Unifor, because they have benefited 1000s of workers throughout the years
Unions in Canada improve work hours, conditions, and pay wages.
Unions help the general economy due to the increased pay, and greater job security
Unions attract skilled workers, since they know they are protected and will most likely receive benefits.
CAW has helped many auto plant workers over the years. Its creation is rooted deep within Ontario's auto plants, and its future in Canada's auto industry looks as promising as its past. As of now CAW represents more than a dozen smaller businesses in Canada, and is continuing to grow with each passing year.
