"Ford Walkout- Members of Local 1520, United Auto Workers Union, milled around the front gate of the St. Thomas Ford Assembly Plant this morning after walking off their jobs.

Ford employees from Oakville and Windsor have also walked out in an apparent protest against the union's move to change the strike deadline from today until next Monday. A union representative asked the St. Thomas strikers to return to work tomorrow morning. Production at the St. Thomas plant has been shut down for the day." (C8 Sh4 B2 F1 36b)
