    CAW to stand ground in talks BY JEFFREY McCRACKEN, Detroit Free Press
    Detroit's automakers won't find it easy to squeeze costs by leaning on their workers across the border.

    The president of the Canadian Auto Workers says his almost 42,000 union members have no intention of making any concessions to Detroit's automakers on wages, pensions or health care when the CAW begins contract negotiations this summer.

    Their reasoning: It's already cheaper to do business in Canada.
