Strike Over At Stellantis

Monday October 30th, 2023, 12:12am


Last updated: Monday October 30th, 10:32am

After a seven-hour strike, a tentative agreement has been reached with Stellantis ending strike action at all Unifor facilities.

Stellantis workers represented by Unifor, including those at the Windsor Assembly Plant, went on strike at 11:59 Sunday.

“I am proud of our members at every Stellantis facility for their quick and decisive action during this brief and effective strike action,” said Unifor National President Lana Payne. “This agreement will considerably improve the living standards of every Unifor member at Stellantis.”

Of the three Detroit automakers, Stellantis has the largest operational footprint, biggest workforce, and most vehicle products manufactured in Canada. The new tentative agreement covers 8,200 Unifor members at the Windsor Assembly Plant (locals 444, 195 and 1498), Brampton Assembly Plant (Local 1285), Etobicoke Casting Plant (Local 1459) and parts distribution centres in Mississauga (Local 1285) and Red Deer (Local 815).

The tentative agreement with Stellantis follows the pattern agreement the union reached with Ford Motor Company and General Motors.

Details of the agreement, including local and facility-specific information will be made available to members prior to ratification votes.
