Unifor, Sets Oct. 29 Strike Deadline For Stellantis Canada Workers

Bargaining Set To Begin Today...

In a significant development, the largest private sector union in Canada, Unifor, has announced a deadline of October 29 for a potential strike at Stellantis, the manufacturer of Canadian-built vehicles like the Chrysler Pacifica, Dodge Charger, Chrysler 300, and Dodge Challenger. This move comes as Unifor gears up to commence official bargaining with the automotive giant today, aiming to secure a contract agreement on par with those recently negotiated with competitors General Motors (GM) and Ford.

Stellantis, boasting the largest manufacturing presence among the Detroit automakers in Canada, employs over 8,200 workers across facilities in Windsor, Brampton, and Etobicoke, Ontario, alongside two integral parts distribution centers.

This latest development follows the resounding ratification of a new three-year contract by Unifor members at GM in Canada, which encompasses 4,300 employees, after a brief strike. The ratified contract adheres to the established pattern established by an earlier agreement with Ford.

Across the border in the United States, the United Auto Workers (UAW) union persists in its strike actions, leaving approximately 34,000 workers across all three Detroit automakers temporarily off the job.

Unifor’s proactive stance reflects its dedication to safeguarding the rights and interests of its 315,000-strong workforce, ensuring equitable conditions within the automotive industry. As negotiations unfold, stakeholders closely watch for developments leading to the October 29 deadline. The outcome will impact Stellantis and reverberate across the broader Canadian automotive sector.
