The Canadian Auto Workers reached an agreement with the Big Three. It marked the first time in 30 years the union and the major automakers avoided a strike during bargaining. The deal was essentially the same at all three carmakers -- small wages increases, improved pensions and benefits and arrangements to spread the jobs around. CAW president Buzz Hargrove said the union challenged the corporate, political, right-wing agenda in the country that said in today's environment workers must take less. He said it was a good sign for working people across the country. (CAW and Ford reached a deal October 14th.)
