Unionized workers at Cdn GM plants ratify deal
Unionized workers at General Motors Canadian plants have voted in favour of a new contract.
The Canadian Auto Workers union says about four thousand members voted 73 per cent in favour of a contract reached last week.
There are more than eight-thousand C-A-W members at G-M facilities in Oshawa, St. Catharines and Woodstock, Ont.
Voting on the contract was held Wednesday and Thursday.
Ford's Canadian workers accepted a new contract on the weekend.
Chrysler reached a tentative deal with its Canadian workers earlier this week -- they'll vote on the deal this weekend.
The deal that G-M workers accepted includes a three-thousand-dollar quality and productivity bonus for workers as well as cost of living payments.
