CAW members vote on tentative deal with Chrysler
Members of the Canadian Auto Workers union at Chrysler
begin voting on a tentative deal today.
Meetings are scheduled today and tomorrow for workers at
Chrysler's Ontario plants in Windsor, Brampton and Toronto.
Shop floor leadership at the factories have already unanimously
endorsed the four year deal reached this week.
The deal includes lump sum payments as well as job security
The deal is based on agreements accepted by CAW members at Ford
and General Motors earlier this week.
The contracts allow the Big Three North American automakers to
pay new employees less and extends the time it takes them to get to
the top of the pay scale.
