Jerry Dias, president of Unifor, says his negotiating group unanimously recommends a preliminary labor agreement that was reached late Monday with Ford Motor Co. Just five minutes before the midnight deadline, Unifor, the union that represents approximately 9,750 employees at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles` Ontario plants, announced that the two parties had reached an interim agreement. “If the argument four years ago that we should focus on the most important needs, then the same argument must apply in 2016,” Dias said. However, negotiations are already mired in controversy, while the Oakville union opposed GM`s model agreement. Dave Thomas, president of Local 707, has informed Ford and Unifor`s national executives that its members will revoke a tentative agreement similar to GM`s agreement.
The union, which represents about 23,000 auto workers in Canada, reached a four-year agreement with GM earlier this week to avoid a possible strike. The current four-year contract expires in September 2016. Local 444 represents more than 6,000 retirees and surviving spouses, Parent said.
