Unifor has picked Fiat – Chrysler Automobile as the next company in negotiations with the Detroit Three automakers.
“Our members at GM will have the opportunity to vote on the tentative agreement this Sunday. If members support the recommendation and approve the new four year Collective Agreement we will shift our focus and immediately resume negotiations with FCA,” said Jerry Dias National President. “Unifor will be seeking a pattern settlement that includes our top priority – investment.”
Fiat Chrysler employs 9,750 Unifor members making the Chrysler 300, Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger (Brampton Assembly Plant with 3,300 Unifor members), the Dodge Caravan and Chrysler Pacifica (Windsor Assembly Plant with 6,000 Unifor members) and cast components (Etobicoke Casting plant with 450 Unifor members).
“We have one simple message for all the Detroit Three automakers: there will be no deal without commitments to new investments in Canada,” Dias said.
