CAW turfs NDP 
(en francais)

Best news I've seen all week. Looks like the Liberals aren't the only ones that like a good scrap these days. Should be interesting to watch the long term results of this.

Other unions and union members will certainly be asking themselves what has the NDP delivered for them over the years. At a certain point, continuous protesting must get frustrating.

Don't help New Democrats, CAW tells members

Stung by the expulsion of its leader from the New Democratic Party, the Canadian Auto Workers union has retaliated by formally asking its members to pull their support from the NDP.

"We are asking elected CAW leaders and CAW staff ... to end their involvement in the party," the union's national executive board said in a statement posted Friday on its website.

"We will no longer offer financial support or other organizational resources to the party."

Unions provide much of the money and manpower for NDP election campaigns. The CAW, with about 250,000 members, is Canada's biggest private-sector union.
