Greetings Unifor members,

Unifor has announced that Ford has been selected as the union’s target company in Auto Talks 2023.

The union made the announcement at a news conference livestreamed on Unifor selected Ford as the target because the union believes that it is in the best position to reach an agreement with Ford that delivers on the needs of Unifor members and set a strong pattern for Canada’s auto industry. A collective agreement with Ford, once reached and ratified, will set the pattern for contract terms and conditions for members at General Motors and Stellantis.

Unifor’s bargaining teams are already hard at work and will continue to meet with the company over the coming weeks to reach a tentative settlement before the contract expires at 11:59 p.m. on Monday September 18.

Members should expect additional bargaining updates in advance of the deadline so please continue to check regularly.

Members are encouraged to direct any questions related to D3 negotiations to [email protected].

In solidarity,

Lana Payne, National President

John D’Agnolo, Ford Master Bargaining Chair

Jason Gale, GM Master Bargaining Chair

James Stewart, Stellantis Master Bargaining Chair
