Stellantis, Unifor in arbitration over COVID-19 vaccine policy – CBC

May 25, 2022

The union representing Canadian workers at Stellantis is in arbitration with the employer over its COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

More than 300 workers across Canada have been suspended without pay for not getting vaccinated or refusing to share their vaccination status.

On Wednesday, arbitrator Marilyn Nairn heard arguments from Unifor and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Canada, the Stellantis subsidiary, which announced a mandatory vaccination policy in October of last year.

Under that policy, workers, contractors, service providers and visitors at all Canadian sites were to provide proof of vaccination.

Unifor Local 444, which represents workers at the Windsor Assembly Plant, was one of several locals that filed a grievance over the company’s policy, including Unifor Local 195, the Windsor security unit, and Unifor Local 1285, the Brampton Assembly Plant. Those grievances have been consolidated into one.
