Chrysler CEO warns of tough talks with CAW


Negotiations between Chrysler Group LLC and the Canadian Auto Workers union this summer may be difficult, said Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne, pointing to a short-lived strike at an auto-parts supplier that caused Chrysler’s minivan plant in Windsor, Ontario, to close for a few hours.

Marchionne told reporters on Monday morning in Detroit, that he had “zero empathy” for the striking CAW workers, at a Dakkota Integrated Systems plant near the Windsor assembly plant.

“This is not the way to get things done,” Marchionne said, adding “if this is an indication” of the relationship between the CAW and Chrysler, “then we’re in for a very difficult round of negotiations.”
