Unifor seeking to represent Toyota workers in Ontario, vote set for next week

KITCHENER, Ont. - The Unifor labour union says it's seeking to represent more than 6,500 workers at Toyota's three Canadian auto plants in Ontario.

The union says it has filed an application with the Ontario Labour Relations Board to become the bargaining agent at Toyota Canada, and it expects its workers to vote in favour of unionization next week.

Toyota has three Canadian assembly plants — two in Cambridge and one in Woodstock, Ont.

If Unifor succeeds, these would be the first Toyota plants in North America to become unionized.

Unifor was created by the merger of the Canadian Auto Workers union, and the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers union. It currently represents 305,000 members in 20 economic sectors.
