Canadian autoworkers ratify new contract with General Motors, leaving only Stellantis without deal
Canadian autoworkers have voted to ratify a three-year contract agreement with General Motors
TORONTO (AP) — Canadian autoworkers have voted to ratify a three-year contract agreement with General Motors.
Members of Unifor, the union representing about 4,300 Canadian workers at three Ontario GM facilities, voted 80.5% in favor of the deal, the union said Sunday in a statement.
The vote followed the pattern of an agreement reached earlier with Ford, and it leaves only Jeep maker Stellantis without a contract. Talks have yet to start with Stellantis, which has the largest Canadian manufacturing footprint of Detroit's three automakers.
The GM agreement came after a brief strike last week by the workers at GM factories in Oshawa and St. Catharines, Ontario, and a parts warehouse in Woodstock, Ontario.
