INGERSOLL – Unifor National President Jerry Dias will join the picket line at the General Motors CAMI plant on Sunday to update members of Local 88 on contract negotiations. Media are welcome to attend.

"The successful conclusion of these talks is vital to the future of the entire community," Dias said.

• WHEN: October 1, 11am
