Possible Strike Looming at Dana Corp.

Employees at Dana Corp. Canada’s Mount Forest facility have voted down the latest tentative agreement between management and their union, and voted to go on strike.
Dayle Steadman, vice-president of Unifor Local 1106, confirmed employees voted against ratifying a new contract and to take strike action, but extended the deadline to strike to 10:59 a.m. Thursday.
“We’re continuing to meet with the employer to attempt to get a deal we can ratify,” said Steadman.
There are currently 230 employees at the plant in the bargaining unit. The latest collective agreement between the union and the company ran from March 31, 2018 to March 30, 2022.
