GM, Unifor reach deal: Reuters

|By:, SA News Editor

General Motors (GM) reaches a deal with Unifor, Canada's largest private sector union which was formed when the Canadian Auto Workers union and the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union merged.

Unifor's first president Jerry Dias pledged to "stop playing defense and start  playing offense," at his first inaugural address this month.

Details of the four-year deal with production and skilled trade workers at a GM plant in Ontario are being "withheld until after the ratification vote on Sunday,"  Reuters says.

The preexisting contract was set to expire Monday.
