TORONTO, Sept 6 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.
