Canada auto union picks GM as strike target

TORONTO, Sept 6 (Reuters) - Canada’s Unifor autoworkers’ union said on Tuesday its first strike target in contract negotiations would be General Motors Co, and set a strike deadline of midnight on Sept. 19.

Under a strategy called pattern bargaining, the union typically selects one company for intensive negotiations and sets a strike deadline in September. That company’s deal sets a pattern, and other auto manufacturers are expected to agree to very similar contracts. (Reporting by Allison Martell and Alastair Sharp Editing by W Simon)
