Bargaining Update #5

9/22/2020

Unifor members,

This is to advise that National President Jerry Dias’ news conference scheduled for 3:00 p.m. ET yesterday has been moved to 11:00 a.m. today, Tuesday, September 22, 2020.

Negotiations continue to progress with Ford Motor Company in advance of the bargaining deadline set for 11:59 p.m. last night.

The Unifor Local and Master Bargaining Committees are working diligently to achieve the union’s priority items, with talks over the past number of days starting very early in the morning and ending late into the night. 

Despite some progress on various items, the union and company continue to focus talks on the key areas, including on job security, wages, benefits and pensions, among others.

We intend to issue another update to members on the status of talks at some point later this afternoon or evening, prior to the bargaining deadline.

Members at Ford Motor Company facilities shall continue to work their assigned shifts until the union provides further notice.

Please be sure to visit www.unifor.org/AutoTalks2020 for official bargaining updates and information.

Ford Announces that
the Bramalea Parts
Warehouse will close!

Little information is presently available but it looks like they will be
moving to two warehouses, one in Toronto West and another in
Eastern Ontario (Possibly the Ottawa area).

Hopefully no employees will be displaced and will have
the opportunity to transfer to either location.

Ford replacing huge
Ontario distribution center
with two new ones

Automotive News
Greg Layson
August 29, 2020

“In order to improve customer satisfaction and expedite parts delivery time to dealers, Ford will be opening a new parts depot in Eastern Ontario and a new location west of Toronto to continue servicing Canada’s most heavily populated region,” Ford Canada spokeswoman Rose Pao told Automotive News Canada in an email. “As a result of the two new locations in Ontario, Ford will no longer operate out of the current Bramalea Parts Distribution Centre once the new locations open.”

The Bramalea National Parts Depot opened  on Aug. 1, 1964, after operating in several other locations through the Greater Toronto Area beginning in the 1940s.

The Bramalea site is 900,000 square feet — or 83,600 square metres — in size and employs about 200 people, Pao said.

News of the closure comes as the Detroit Three and Unifor prepare for contract talks. Local bargaining, including with Unifor Local 584 in Bramalea, is already underway.

“We are currently at the collective bargaining table with Unifor. We will continue to have dialogue with Unifor on our plan, including employment-related details," Pao said when asked whether the current employees will be able to transfer.

When the facility opened in 1964, it took on 49 transfers from Windsor, Ont., according to the union’s website.

Ford Canada hasn’t yet decided on the location of the two new facilities.

“We are in the process of determining the new sites now, so it is too early to provide timing,” Pao said. “We anticipate this transition to take place over the next few years.”

Pao couldn’t say whether the new locations will be built from scratch or located in existing buildings.

Unifor Local 584 officials weren’t immediately available for comment.

Chris was born on August 17, 1945 in Amsterdam Netherlands and immigrated to Rexdale Ontario Canada in June 1970. As per his wishes an Open House Celebration of Life will take place on Sunday August 23, 2020 from 2-5pm at his daughters home.
