CAW not surprised by GM s effort to end blockade in court


OSHAWA, Ontario The Canadian Auto Workers union says it s not surprised General Motors Corp. is preparing to go to court in a bid to end the blockade of its Canadian headquarters in Oshawa, Ontario.

CAW Local 222 president Chris Buckley says the union anticipated the court fight and has no plans to back down from its roadblock, which was launched last week.

He says the union will wait to see how aggressively GM pursues its legal battle before coming up with a plan.

Angry GM employees have spent the past week blocking the entrance to the Detroit automaker s Canadian offices to protest the pending closure of the city s truck plant.

GM says it will seek collaborative or such necessary legal means to end the blockade, which is hampering its Canadian operations.
