Unifor members who work at industrial equipment supplier Colonial Tool Group Inc. in Windsor, Ont., voted unanimously on April 26 for their new three-year contract with the company.


“Congratulations to the bargaining committee for negotiating a contract that best serves the needs of their members,” said Unifor National President Lana Payne. 

“I am so proud of our members for the dedicated, skilled work they do in tool and die and standing strong for a contract that reflects the respect they deserve.”

There are 35 members of Local 195 who work as Class A tool machinists, Class B tool machinists, in machine assembly, inspection, plant services, as janitors and production operators.

The biggest win of this new deal is all members were moved into the CAAT pension plan from the current Defined Contribution plan.

“This is a massive improvement for our members that our members have long-fought for,” said Local 195 President Emile Nabbout. “It will help them feel more secure in their future, and in retirement.”

The contract expires March 31, 2027.
