Media Advisory - Unifor Reaches Tentative Settlement at General Motors-CAMI in Ingersoll


LONDON, ON, Sept. 14, 2013 /CNW/ - Unifor, the union representing Canada's auto workers, reached a tentative settlement with General Motors on a new collective agreement covering workers at the company's Ingersoll assembly plant late yesterday.

The union represents approximately 2700 production and skilled trades workers at the General Motors assembly complex (also known as the CAMI plant) in Ingersoll, Ontario.

Details of the tentative agreement will be released upon ratification of the deal. A membership ratification meeting is scheduled to take place tomorrow (Sunday September 15, 2013) starting at 3 p.m. at Centennial Hall in London, Ontario.

Union members at the Ingersoll facility are not part of the Unifor-General Motors master agreement (an agreement that covers more than 5,500 workers in three facilities across Ontario). The master agreement was negotiated and signed by Unifor (then the Canadian Auto Workers union) and General Motors in 2012.

The workers at CAMI are represented by Unifor Local 88, and manufacture the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain vehicles.

Ratification results will be released over Canada News Wire on Sunday September 15, in the evening.
