Unifor Locals 195, 698 , 815, 1285, and 1459 reached a tentative agreement with Team Industrial today covering 350 cleaning and facility management workers at auto assembly plants and parts depots in Red Deer, Windsor, Brampton, Mississauga, Etobicoke, and Montreal.
The bargaining committee unanimously endorses the two-year agreement noting that it provides members with solid economic gains that reflect their invaluable contribution to FCA/Stellantis facilities across Canada. Members are strongly urged to vote in favour of the contract.
“I want to congratulate the bargaining team for their hard work and dedication throughout the negotiations and join them in unanimously recommending the agreement,” said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President. “The important gains made in this round of bargaining would not have been possible with the support and solidarity of our members.”
The tentative agreement reached brings weeks of bargaining with the employer to a close. The gains made in the agreement include a signing bonus, wage increases, as well as numerous improvements to members’ benefits coverage.
Specific details of the deal will be presented to Unifor members at online ratification meetings scheduled to take place over the weekend of January 30-31.
