Electric vehicles and 2,000 jobs coming to Windsor following tentative FCA deal
A tentative deal reached between Unifor and Fiat Chrysler will bring 2,000 jobs to the Windsor plant along with electric vehicle capability in the next few years.

The agreement was struck a few minutes before midnight Wednesday, avoiding a possible strike from autoworkers.

At a press conference this morning, Union President Jerry Dias explained that Unifor managed to secure about a $1.5 billion dollar investment into the Windsor assembly plant, with the majority of the money coming from Fiat Chrysler.

"This is a homerun for the community of Windsor," said Dias.

Third shift will return

In addition to keeping the existing product portfolio in Ontario, Dias says FCA has committed to adding three product derivatives to its plants.

"Those products will lead to the recall of over 100 members at the Etobicoke casting plant," said Dias.

Earlier this year, the Windsor plant lost its third shift causing 1,500 workers to be laid off. Today, Dias said the new jobs added will include calling back 425 workers and adding more than 1,500 new jobs to the Windsor region.

Unifor is lucky it did not "secure" a quick export of the area's jobs to Mexico. What's up with your sudden support for a plant that requires public money to prop up, CM?

He's never been against public money propping up virtue signalling projects: Tesla, renewable energy, globull warming, etc.

Hmm so they laid off 1500 and 425 of them are returning. A good bet that most of the remaining 1125 would be available as finding work right now is next to impossible.

That means that the 1500 new hires will almost certainly be hired at considerably reduced wages and with little or no relevant experience. A double bonus for FCA: Lower wages plus workers whose skill level is guaranteed to help FCA remain at the bottom of the quality heap.

Those new jobs could of course be pie in the sky as it looks like 2024 before they all come online, assuming FCA can sell electric vehicles at all.

Harley has long sold out much of its devoted user base. If they manufacture these in the U.S., more power to them.

It's no worse than the electric motorcycle line they've developed (which is doomed to go nowhere) and, in some cases, actually better.
