A strike by North American affiliate USWA has shut operations at a Michelin plant in Canada. The strike, begun 1 June by 1,000 members of USWA Local 677 in Kitchener, Ontario, is over company proposals to cut pay and health benefits of current workers and future retirees at the profit-making auto and light-truck tyre plant. The facility is a former B.F. Goodrich tyre plant, which French-based Groupe Michelin purchased in 1986.
