Deal Approved At Stellantis

Monday November 6th, 2023, 5:44pm


Unifor Stellantis workers have voted 60% in favour of a new contract.

The three-year collective agreements cover approximately 8,200 Unifor members.

The membership of locals 444, 1285, 1459, 195, 1498, and 815 ratified the agreements as follows:

  • Master Production and Maintenance Agreement (WAP, BAP and ECP) ratified 60.0% overall (60.0% production and 60.3% skilled trades).
  • Office, Clerical and Engineering Agreement ratified 86.5%.
  • Fire and Security Agreement ratified 85.2%.
  • Mississauga PDC Agreement ratified 86.1%.
  • Red Deer PDC Agreement ratified 100%.

The agreements with Stellantis follow the core economic pattern set with Ford and followed by General Motors. Over the life of the three-year contract, base hourly wages for workers at top rate will increase by nearly 20% for production workers and 25% for Skilled Trades along with Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) adjustments beginning in December 2024 to help protect workers wages from rising inflation. The Master Agreement also includes special EV transition provisions, including enhanced income security protections, to help support Unifor members through the EV retooling period.
