Unionized workers at an Oshawa auto dealership have ratified a deal that grants them a two per cent annual raise for the next three years.
Unifor Local 222 members at Mills Motors voted 90 per cent in favour of the collective agreement, which focussed on job security at the automotive dealership, and ratified it last week.
“The ongoing supply chain shortages and other economic interruptions have squeezed automotive dealerships, and by extension, workers. Congratulations to the bargaining committee for securing this contract amidst difficult times for the auto industry,” said Lana Payne, Unifor National President.
Members will benefit from 2 per cent wage increases in each year of the agreement, retroactive to August 31. The contract includes no concessions.
“Here in Oshawa, Unifor will always work to preserve good jobs. I’m proud of our bargaining committee in reaching this agreement and delivering on members’ priorities for a strong contract and reliable work for years to come,” said Rob Romano, Unifor Local 222 Financial Secretary.
The three-year contract, which will expire on August 31, 2025, covers approximately 35 workers at Mills Motors in Oshawa. Members work in servicing, parts and inventory departments.
