Chrysler, Canadian auto union reach deal; strikes, production move avoided

TORONTO -- The Canadian Auto Workers union agreed to a new labor contract with Chrysler, ending weeks of talks with the Detroit automakers and avoiding strikes and the possibility production will move to the United States.

CAW President Ken Lewenza said Wednesday night that Chrysler matched the four-year agreements the union reached with Ford and GM this month. The contracts cut wages for new hires and freeze pay for current workers. But the contracts also give them lump-sum payments to cover inflation and for ratifying the deal.
