Ford Canada negotiations continue with Unifor union

Postby CielOnTap on Mon Oct 31, 2016 10:02 pm

10:56 pm here in Ontario and there's no new contract yet for Ford Canada workers. If the clock reaches 11:59pm without a new agreement,
the August 28 union members' strike vote takes effect immediately i.e. employees are on strike). Plenty of households in the Golden Horseshoe region around Lake Ontario have direct or connected jobs with Ford Canada.

The other two Big Three car manufacturers, General Motors of Canada and Chrysler-Fiat, have new contracts with their unionized employees.

58% of Unifor union members working for Ford Canada accepted the proposed contract. The percentage is lower than the vote result for GM workers' ratification of their contract.
