It went right down to the wire.
With just minutes to go before the 11:59 p.m. Monday strike deadline, a tentative agreement was announced between Fiat-Chrysler and the union representing thousands of auto workers.
The four-year deal includes a commitment from the automaker to build a hybrid vehicle at its plant in Windsor, as well an investment of $325M into the paint shop at the Brampton assembly plant.
The deal mirrors the economic framework of the deal Unifor recently reached with General Motors, and talks with Ford will likely follow suit.
Fiat-Chrysler workers, nearly ten-thousand of them, are scheduled to vote on the tentative pact next weekend.
