Stellantis workers represented by Unifor have a new collective agreement, the union announced Monday evening.
The Windsor and Brampton Assembly plants, as well as the Etobicoke casting plant, ratified the new agreement by 60 per cent overall. Ratification rates were at 85 per cent or higher in other segments of Unifor's membership in office and clerical, among others.
The three-year collective agreement will cover about 8,200 Unifor members.
The deal includes a nearly 20 per cent increase over the life of the contract, new paid holidays, cost of living allowances and a $10,000 signing bonus.
By the end of the three-year agreement, a full-rate production worker will make $44.52 per hour, according to the union.
"Unifor members at Stellantis will receive the same significant wage increases, pension improvements and electric vehicle (EV) transition income security measures as Unifor members at Ford and General Motors," said Unifor National President Lana Payne.
"This contract also confirms investment and product commitments for Windsor, Brampton and Etobicoke, including the retooling of Brampton Assembly to build future EVs."
More to come.
