Negotiations with the D3 will begin in five weeks.

Everyone has an important role to play in the bargaining process.

Unifor autoworkers have clearly laid out a vision for this year’s Auto Talks and your union is ready to get to work to achieve it.

Watch your Auto Talks 2023 leadership team’s latest video message about what’s at stake in this year’s negotiations.

While preparing for Auto Talks, Unifor leadership has also worked tirelessly to secure the Stellantis footprint and tens of thousands of autoworker jobs, including the future Stellantis/LG Energy Solution EV battery plant in Windsor.

The union welcomed news that construction will finally resume thanks to the union’s advocacy work. From the start, Unifor made it clear that our union would not let anyone—not the company or the governments involved—take away the good jobs and the secure future that autoworkers were promised.

Read the union’s media release on the battery plant announcement.
