Unifor concludes negotiations with the Detroit Three automakers, after members ratify a four-year contract with Ford securing $713 million in investment, new product, more than 500 jobs, and wage improvements. All three tentative agreements with Ford were ratified by members. Across all bargaining units, the contract was approved with a vote of 58 per cent.
“With the Ford ratification, our union has secured more good, unionized jobs at all of the Detroit Three automakers,” said Unifor National President Jerry Dias. “We solidified a footprint for the future of auto in Canada and none of this would have happened if our union was not willing to fight for principles and to do it together.”
