Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Unifor on Wednesday night agreed to a tentative labor contract, averting a strike with minutes to go.

A news conference with Unifor President Jerry Dias is scheduled for 10 a.m. ET Thursday. The union provided no details about the agreement, including its length, but said it would provide “more information” at the news conference.

The company confirmed the tentative agreement. “FCA Canada confirms that the Company has reached a tentative agreement with Unifor on a new contract,” an FCA Canada statement said. “Further details will be provided at a later date.”

So maybe that was the sticking point and 2021 production can now begin.

Noted Voyager minivans mentioned in the article - so that's likely a Chrysler Voyager (Plymouth used to have that version).

So another past model name is resurrected.

Also the negotiations mentioned bringing back a 3rd shift at Brampton - they're been running two shifts. Prior to 2008, there used to be 3 shifts running at the plant

After the 300 is gone, probably after 2021, they will almost surely bring something else to Brampton to build. I like the 300 but it's sales have totally tanked in the last few years. Too bad because it's a nice car.

I think sales tanked because they have not advertised the car in several years.

New Unifor-FCA Collective Bargaining Agreement Strengthens Commitment to Canadian Operations With Investment and Jobs
  • New agreement includes up to CAD $1.58 billion in total investments and creates 2,000 new jobs
  • Windsor to be retooled to produce electrified vehicles
  • Brampton and Etobicoke to receive investment for new products
  • Agreement firmly establishes FCA as the leading automobile employer in Canada
October 19, 2020 , Windsor, Ontario - FCA Canada confirmed today that its Unifor-represented workforce has ratified a new three-year agreement that builds on the Company’s commitment to grow its Canadian manufacturing operations by providing total investments of up to $1.58 billion and creating 2,000 new jobs.

“FCA has maintained a strong footprint in Canada for nearly a century. Over the last decade, we have invested over $4 billion in our Canadian manufacturing facilities, more than any other OEM in the country and it is our intention to maintain this leadership,” said Mark Stewart, Chief Operating Officer, FCA North America. “This agreement bolsters our global competitiveness and positions us for future growth with new product investment and new jobs, while also demonstrating our commitment to our employees, their families and the communities we represent.”

Working in collaboration with Unifor, as well as both the Federal and Provincial governments, the Company has committed to install a new multi-energy vehicle architecture, including Plug-In Hybrid Electric (PHEV) and Battery Electric (BEV) vehicle capability, and at least one new model on that architecture at its Windsor Assembly Plant. The value of this investment ranges from $1.35 billion to $1.50 billion.

Additional investments include $50 million for Brampton Assembly, which will introduce three new variants of the popular Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger muscle cars, in addition to continuing production of the Chrysler 300. The Etobicoke Casting Plant will receive two new products with an investment of $14.4 million, which includes a workforce increase of 22 percent. FCA’s transport operation (FCAT) also will receive $14.3 million in equipment upgrades.

The new agreement follows the previously established pattern on economics and benefits.

FCA Canada continues to employ more people and build more vehicles than any of the domestic three automakers. The new agreement covers more than 8,400 Unifor-represented manufacturing employees across the country.
