June 7, 2011, 4:25 PM EST
After a tough round of negotiations, CAW Local 27 members who work at Electro-Motive in London, Ontario today voted 69 per cent in favour of an extension agreement with the locomotive manufacturer.
The contract extends the current collective agreement from June 1 until December 31, 2011. The agreement was reached on May 29.
"The membership have made a prudent decision and the message to the employer is that we will not accept an agreement that slashes our wages, pensions and benefits," said CAW Local 27 President Tim Carrie.
CAW Local 27 represents 650 production and skilled trades workers at the London facility.
