TORONTO (AP) — The Canadian Auto Workers union says little progress has been made in negotiations with Detroit's three big automakers as a strike deadline looms Monday night.

The union said Friday that a number of senior executives from General Motors, Chrysler and Ford are now in Toronto, but the automakers are still far from agreement on fundamental issues.

Union secretary-treasurer Peter Kennedy says the union may strike all three companies if negotiations fail.

At issue is the future of Canada's auto industry.

The auto companies say Canada is now the most expensive place in the world to make cars and trucks, and they say they could move production south if the CAW doesn't cut costs.
