Ford Passes First Hurdle: Canada’s Unifor Members

Posted on 09/26/2023

Canada’s labor union Unifor has reached a deal with Ford for a three year contract that will provide members a 15% wage increase. However, Ford has not yet reached a deal with U.S. workers, who are being joined by Joe Biden on the picket lines. Unifor has 5,600 members. Pensions will be bolstered and job security will increase, among other employee benefits.

Unifor announced: “Congratulations. The ballots have been counted and you have ratified a three-year agreement that will see tremendous gains for autoworkers. On behalf of the entire bargaining team, we would like to thank all members for their support and solidarity throughout these negotiations.”

As part of the deal, a new pension plan will be launched in 2025.
