(AP) The Canadian Auto Workers union says it will focus on reaching an agreement with Ford as negotiations continue with all of Detroit's Big Three automakers with a strike deadline looming Monday night.


CAW President Ken Lewenza said Sunday that Ford has shown a willingness to reach an agreement. He says talks with Chrysler and General Motors will also continue.


The CAW represents about 4,500 workers at Ford, 8,000 workers at GM and another 8,000 at Chrysler. Its contracts with all three automakers expire at 11:59 p.m. Monday.


The union has focused talks in the past on one of the automakers with the idea of setting a template deal for all three.


The auto companies say Canada is the most expensive place in the world to make cars and trucks.
