FCA is next for Unifor

by David Zatz on

Unifor, the inheritor of the Canadian Auto Workers, announced today that FCA would be its next bargaining target, with negotiations beginning once its deal with General Motors is ratified.


The union’s chief goal is future investment. Windsor is unlikely to be an issue, but the Brampton plant, where large cars are made, could be.  FCA is likely to commit to further investing in the Etobicoke casting plant near Toronto.

The deal with GM involved a half billion dollars of investments, including commitments for the Oshawa plant. Oshawa will get Silverado bodies, with no loss of jobs when the Impala/XTS line stops. In addition, there are promises for the St. Catharines powertrain plant.  In addition to jobs, GM agreed to wage increases and a defined-contribution pension plan for new hires.
