Canadian Chrysler workers accept new contract, 90% vote in support

TORONTO--Canadian auto workers at Chrysler have ratified a new contract with the automaker, the auto union said.

The Canadian Auto Workers union said Sunday that 90 percent of those voting approved the tentative deal that was reached last week. It was not immediately clear how many of the 8,000 workers at Chrysler's plants in Ontario cast ballots in the ratification vote held this weekend.

The four-year deal includes lump sum payments, as well as job security provisions.

The agreement is based on agreements already accepted by union members at Ford and General Motors. Ford and GM workers ratified their agreements by margins of 82 percent and 73 percent, respectively.

Chrysler was the last of the Big Three North American automakers to hammer out a contract, ending the possibility of strikes and that production would move to the United States in the next four years.
