    EVER


    GM has a deal with CAW -- when they closed the Ste. Therese assembly plant they agreed to not build them elsewhere.

    SHHHH!

    There's loopholes and allowances aplenty in that contract (I'll see if I can find the article I read on it).

    One of the things I do remember is something to the effect that all the CAW worker's from St. Therese must be hired elsewhere at other GM factories (with relocation if required), or given hefty seperation packages. Last I heard, GM was well on it's way to meeting that requirement. There's a few other's as well, wish I could recall off hand...

    The rumor among the F-Body crowd is pretty much unanimous that the Camaro will eventually come back, but the Firebird is gone for good (well, at least as far as current GM plans... Who knows in 30 years, look at the GTO).

    Me? I'm keeping my fingers crossed :x:

    Last I heard the plant was demolished, nullifying the deal with the Canadian Autoworkers Union not to build the cars elsewhere.
