It began with a statement by Obama yesterday, when he told reporters that the CEO of Caterpillar would hire back laid off workers as soon as the stimulus passed … and followed with a statement by the CEO of Caterpillar that … well no … he still would likely have to layoff more people. It’s […]

On Friday, Caterpillar announced the closing of a locomotive plant in Ontario, Canada. The plant had been the site of a weeks long lockout over wages and benefits. To remain competitive with the likes of General Electric, Caterpillar wanted concessions, but the Canadian Auto Workers union refused.
