Sources: GM offers 2% raises in UAW contract; ends health care

Sources: GM offers 2% raises in UAW contract; ends health care GM and the UAW returned to the bargaining table Tuesday under tension, a picket in front of GM's headquarters and concerns over health care coverage.

Many of them served as army generals and navy admirals, defending Russian borders in different wars and battles. Another reason the show has been running for so long is that there is no main storyline, it is very much episodic, each episode telling a story of a separate adventure.

Aeroplanes have moved on more than a little since the first aviators soared into the sky, clad in leather jackets, caps and goggles. New planes only make it into the air after a long list of tests – from chucking chickens into jet engines to simulate bird strikes to bending the wings to extreme angles.

  • The huge turnout at the Montreal climate strike has resulted in major cell service disruptions in the downtown and Plateau Mont-Royal areas.
  • Rogers and Bell confirm that their networks are experiencing high traffic at the moment and that service is slow.

Currently, reports estimate that there are over 500,000 people marching as part of the Montreal climate strike. Though the crowds have made for some impressive scenes, the traffic has resulted in a loss of cell service in the area.

Unless you are living in hiding today, you should know that Greta Thunberg is leading our city in the largest climate protest in Canada.

How the GM strike could start a Midwest recession

How the GM strike could start a Midwest recession The nearly 50,000 striking General Motors workers are just the beginning. Soon hundreds of thousands of people could be off the job because of the walkout. The strike by the United Auto Workers union could even tip large swaths of the Midwest into recession. The union and management were back at the negotiating table on Wednesday, but there was no sign of a quick conclusion to a walkout that began Monday over pay, benefits, the use of temporary workers and the fate of several plants. GM isn't the only one affected by the work stoppage.

Has struck . There were ……. people injured during the car crash . Plenty. Much. Several. Have you …….. the plane tickets yet? Buy. Bought. Students have been reduced/banned from wearing jeans at school. The advancing/rising price of food affects poor people the most .

My friend George had all the weekends for himself, only because his parents were more relaxed about his education than my parents were . Laura was a newcomer in the class. She joined us at the beginning of that year and nobody knew where she had gone to school before.

You may notice that when you are attending a large concert at the Bell centre that sometimes, your texts or posts aren’t going through. That is exactly what is happening in downtown Montreal right now, but on a much larger scale.

If there are, indeed, 500,000 people at the protest, that would mean that a crowd approximately equal to 27% of Montreal's population is currently protesting. With so many people in a small geographic area, there are bound to be “traffic jams,” according to a Rogers representative.

The representative explained that too many people are attempting to use the same source of service and it is simply not working as fast as it should.

An MTL Blog correspondent at the protest confirmed that roughly from the Sir George-Étienne Cartier monument on ave. du Parc to boulevard René-Lévesque, trying to get cell service was nearly impossible.

How GM's profit sharing offer to UAW workers missed the mark

  How GM's profit sharing offer to UAW workers missed the mark GM and the UAW are in day 7 of the strike. They continue to negotiate. One area where the union says GM fell flat is with its profit sharing offer.Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, for the first time with frontrunner status in a new Iowa Poll, was to join strikers at Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Plant on the picket lines Sunday. UAW President Gary Jones dubbed it "Solidarity Sunday" and invited the public to join strikers across the country. Former Vice President Joe Biden, the leader in most Democratic polls, was expected at a labor rally in Kansas City, Kansas.

According to the Bell outage map, Montreal is, in fact, experiencing difficulty with service. So, if you are trying to reach a loved one that is protesting, don't be worried if they are not answering you.

Montreal isn't the only affect city, either, it seems. Protests across the country are likely causing the other outages marked by Bell.

The outage hasn't totally prevented Montreales from sharing images from the protest, however. Photos and videos posted to social media show impressive crowds marching through the downtown and even staging mini-demonstrations on STM metro trains.

The protest is still going on and will likely end at the corner of rues Robert-Bourassa and De La Commune, in case you wanted to join.

And companies that make auto parts are also starting to see work slow down. Dealer inventory of new vehicles is holding up but starting to get depleted on a few models.Meanwhile, GM is losing millions of dollars and has been forced to close one Canadian factory and send workers home at another.
