Ford work­ers ac­cept deal with au­tomaker

Toronto Star - - CANADA -

Union­ized work­ers at Ford’s Cana­dian op­er­a­tions have ac­cepted a new con­tract with the au­tomaker.

Uni­for, which rep­re­sents about 6,700 work­ers at Ford, said the deal was ap­proved by 58 per cent of the em­ploy­ees who voted.

The ten­ta­tive con­tract was ham­mered out last week after marathon ne­go­ti­a­tions.

Uni­for says Ford has promised to in­vest $713 mil­lion in its Cana­dian op­er­a­tions and the deal in­cludes two wage in­creases of two per cent over four years.
