Unifor, a union that represents about 5,600 Ford workers who make engines for Mustangs and F-150s, and Ford did not reach a deal by Monday's 11:59 p.m. deadline. However, workers did not immediately strike, as the union extended the deadline for 24 hours. A deal was reached during that period.
Like workers in the U.S., Canadian autoworkers have been fighting for better pay, benefits, and job security as automakers shift to electronic vehicles.
