Caterpillar Mark’s, People angry about Caterpillar’s callous closure of a a London, Ont., locomotive plant are trying to put the boots to the multi-national heavy-equipment maker. Literally.
National clothing chain Mark’s Work Wearhouse has pulled Caterpillar-branded products, including popular work boots, from its shelves in London amid furor over the announced shutdown of Electro-Motive Canada and the loss of some 700 jobs.
Critics contend the shutdown was long-planned because Caterpillar wants to move locomotive production to a lower-wage U.S. plant. Management locked out unionized employees on Jan. 1 and demanded a 50 per cent pay cut to reopen the plant.
