FCA said it had “a long-standing history of working collaboratively with Unifor, which has helped strengthen our position in the Canadian market since 2009,” and pointed to its investment of over $3 billion in its Canadian facilities along with its addition of nearly 2,200 hourly employees.  The company added, “…we look forward to continuing that partnership while reaching a labour agreement that will sustain the Company’s competitiveness over the long term.”

Unifor president Jerry Dias said, “there can be no deals without commitments to new investments in Canada. It just makes sense to invest in Canada. Our workers are the most highly skilled and productive in the world.” New investments and product allocations are the top priority.
