CAW READY TO LEAVE CLC

Ottawa — Buzz Hargrove, Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) president said the union is prepared to leave the 2.3-million member national labour body, the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC), over the principle of democracy. The CAW is facing sanctions, including possible expulsion, because it attracted 30,000 members of the U.S.-based Service Employee International Union, and was found guilty of raiding by the CLC. Stealing dues-paying members from another CLC member is forbidden by the body’s constitution.
