Canadian General Motors Plant Hit By Wildcat Strike

A wildcat strike at GM’s CAMI plant briefly shut down the assembly plant where the GMC Terrain and Chevrolet Equinox are produced.
The strike lasted a mere 2.5 hours. According to the QMI news agency
“…a worker at the plant said the incident started in the morning when [a worker] was raising a concern with a plant supervisor and was ordered to leave the plant along with another union official.
The worker said the walkout affected production at the plant which is running at capacity with three shifts, six days a week.”
The worker in question, Mike van Boekel, is the unit chairperson for Unifor Local 88. He told QMI that as part of the terms of the settlement, he has been asked not to speak about the incident.

Good lord, when was the last "wildcat" strike at a GM plant?
Is GM sure it wasn't a Hellcat Strike?
As someone unfamiliar with certain labor terms, I thought for a split second the headline was literal.
Oh, I'm going to run right out and buy one of these cars -- not.
