Future auto investment Unifor’s goal going into contract talks

“We are expecting to make gains for our members,” said Jerry Dias, national president of Unifor. “Our priority will be job security, there’s no question about that.

“There will not be a settlement in Canada unless we can find a solution for General Motors in Oshawa, Ford in Windsor and a long-term commitment for (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’) plant in Brampton.”

Negotiations affecting 23,500 hourly workers at Ford, General Motors and FCA Canada aren’t expected to rev up until the summer, but Unifor officials appear to be tempering wage expectations to secure product investments on this side of the border.
