Workers at the GM CAMI plant in Ingersoll, Ontario, Canada voted to approve a new contract with General Motors on the morning of Monday, October 16th and workers went back to work that same night.
The four year-long deal, officially known as the collective bargaining agreement, was initially reached on October 13th between GM and Unifor. The plant’s workers, which belong to the Canadian Unifor union, were then required to ratify it by voting this morning, which they have now done. The agreement’s ratification completely ends a four week-long strike at the facility.
GM issued the following statement regarding the agreement’s ratification:
We are pleased that Unifor members have today ratified a new collective agreement, covering hourly employees at our CAMI Assembly manufacturing plant. This new agreement builds upon CAMI’s history of innovation, quality and productivity.
The CAMI plant produces the new, third-generation Chevrolet Equinox compact crossover starting, which went into production with the 2018 model year. The crossover is also assembled at two GM Mexico facilities – GM San Luis Potosi and GM Ramos Arizpe.
