Dearborn Ford workers reject "final" offer

KAMLOOPS, BC, Aug. 29, 2019 /CNW/ - Members of Unifor Local 10-B working for Dearborn Ford (a subsidiary of Cam Clark Auto Group) have voted overwhelmingly to reject the company's so-called "final" offer, bringing the bargaining closer to job action.

"Cam Clark Auto Group doesn't get it: we are not taking concessions. We will only settle for fairness," said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President.

Unifor said that it will continue to pursue a bad faith bargaining complaint with the B.C. Labour Relations Board. The union alleges illegal tactics by the employer constitute bad faith bargaining and have hindered the union's attempt to negotiate a new collective agreement.

"I am proud to say that Unifor members at Dearborn Ford have rejected a concession-based final offer by a vote of 90%. These Local 10-B members have stood strong and united as the Cam Clark Group have used bullying tactics to break them," said Rene Pellerin, President of Unifor Local 10-B.

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.
