Unifor Stellantis Master Bargaining Chair James Stewart said: “Our members and our bargaining team stood firm in our resolve to reach a strong agreement that follows the union’s core economic pattern and all of the issues specific to our individual Stellantis facilities.

The agreement puts in place all the elements of our pattern agreement, the protections autoworkers need throughout the EV transition, and next-generation products our members will build for years to come.”

The Unifor agreements in Canada come as the US UAW labour union struck tentative agreements with the Detroit 3 over the past week (the last of which was struck with General Motors).
