Dearborn Ford accused of bargaining in bad faith


KAMLOOPS, BC, Aug. 7, 2019 /CNW/ - Unifor has filed a complaint with the B.C. Labour Relations Board after reports surfaced of Dearborn Ford's managers interfering with union members during bargaining.

"Cutting side deals while hiding concessions undermines the collective bargaining process and will make it more difficult to achieve a fair settlement without job action," said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President.

Unifor says the alleged illegal tactics by the employer constitute bad faith bargaining and have hindered the union's attempt to negotiate a new collective agreement. The parties are scheduled to begin mediation on August 13 but Unifor says the company's bad faith tactics have to stop if bargaining is going to be successful.

"Approaching individuals with half-truths about the company's proposed concessions was meant to de-rail the negotiation process, which will ultimately hurt the entire workforce at Dearborn Ford," said Rene Pellerin, President of Local 10-B. "The right thing for Dearborn Ford to do is return to the bargaining table and immediately cease their campaign of misinformation."

Unifor is Canada's largest union in the private sector, representing 315,000 workers in every major area of the economy. The union advocates for all working people and their rights, fights for equality and social justice in Canada and abroad, and strives to create progressive change for a better future.
