Fiat Chrysler (FCA) workers represented by Unifor, vote Sunday on whether to ratify a new four-year labor contract with the automaker.
The voting started at 9:00 A.M. and will continue through the afternoon.
The tentative deal includes a $325 million investment to overhaul the Brampton plant, in addition to $6.5 million in upgrades to FCA’s Etobicoke casting plant in Toronto.
The discontinuation of the Dodge Dart and Chrysler 200 will lead to the elimination of 150-200 jobs at the plant. Those workers will be offered jobs at Brampton as part of the deal.
Should members reject the proposal, 9,750 FCA workers in Canada would be put in a strike position.
Final results are expected Sunday evening.
If the FCA contract is ratified, Unifor President Jerry Dias says negotiations with Ford will start on Monday.
