“The union remains fully committed to negotiating a fair and equitable deal for our members that address the challenging economic times,” said Lana Payne,

Unifor National President. “I am calling on the employer to return to Monday’s negotiations with a genuine intent to reach an agreement. Our members prefer to avoid a labour dispute but stand ready to act if it becomes necessary.”

Conciliation is scheduled for Monday. 

“Our members are seeking a deal that truly represents their hard work and dedication every single day,” said Cory Will, Unifor Local 100 President. “Anything less is unacceptable.”
