MONTREAL - Talks are continuing with General Motors and Chrysler to reach new collective agreements with the Canadian Auto Workers Union.
Chrysler would only say that talks are ongoing and had no further comment.
The Canadian Auto Workers was holding what it has described as "constructive talks" with GM.
The union cancelled a Monday night strike deadline, agreeing to give Chrysler and GM negotiators more time to review a tentative four-year deal it reached with Ford that it wants to serve as a pattern agreement.
The Ford deal contains no base wage increases, but workers will get $2,000 a year in the second, third and fourth years to cover cost of living increases, and a $3,000 ratification bonus.
Industry observers say the Ford deal is expected to used as the basis for deals with GM and Chrysler.
