Effective January 1st, the membership of the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) in western Canada grew by over 6,500 with the addition of the former members of the Canadian Association of Industrial, Mechanical, and Allied Workers (CAIMAW).
In the early years, CAIMAW stood almost alone as an industrial union controlled in Canada (only a third of the organized workforce belonged to Canadian unions at that time).
The decision to merge with the CAW came from a recognition by the CAIMAW leadership and membership that it was now time to become part of a truly national union.
Several organizations, such as CAIMAW and the National Farmers Union have confined themselves to general criticisms of the government's actions.
