Ford Canada autoworkers approve contract

Unionized workers at Ford's Canadian operations have approved a four-year contract, which includes $100 million (Canadian) in pledged investment for a nearby assembly plant in Oakville, Ont.

Ford pledged a total of $713 million (Canadian) in its Canadian operations as part of the deal.

Across all bargaining units, the contract was approved by 58 percent of voting members, according to Unifor, the union which represents them.

Ford's stamping plant in Woodlawn supplies parts to the Oakville assembly plant, among other facilities. Unifor officials said last week that Ford plans to phase out production of the Flex, one of the vehicles which the Woodlawn plant supports, in 2020.

The president and CEO of Ford Motor Co. of Canada is a Hamburg native, Dianne Craig.
