Final Offer

Top of page

Because the filmmakers were given unparalleled freedom to record the historic 1984 contract negotiations between the United Auto Workers and General Motors Corporation, Final Offer provides a vividly accurate portrait of a high-level labour negotiation. This film is an invaluable document for anyone interested in the complexities of United States-Canada relations. Because of tensions that developed between the American and Canadian sectors of the UAW during the contract talks, the film concludes with Bob White, the charismatic head of the Canadians, leading his membership out of the international union. Final Offer is an extraordinary film about revolutionary events.

1985, 78 min 36 s
