Canadian auto workers ratify new contract with GM

The auto workers of Canada voted to ratify an agreement for a three-year contract with General Motors.

Members of Unifor, the union that represents about 4,300 Canadian workers at three GM facilities in Ontario, voted 80.5% in favor of the agreement, the union said Sunday in a statement.

The vote followed the pattern of a deal previously reached with Ford, which now leaves only Stellantis, the Jeep maker, without a contract. Talks have not yet begun with Stellantis, which has the largest manufacturing operation in Canada of the three Detroit automakers.

The agreement with GM was reached after a brief strike last week by workers at GM factories in Oshawa and St. Catharines, Ont., and at parts of a warehouse in Woodstock. Ont.

General Motors said in a statement that the agreement recognizes the contributions of workers, while also positioning the company to be competitive in the future.
