Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) at Freightliner's Sterling Truck plant in St. Thomas, Ontario, ratified a tentative agreement that was reached last week between the CAW and the company.
The deal that was agreed upon by 91% of the 1,100 union workers ends a two- week long strike at the plant.
CAW said the company dropped its demand for new escalating co-pays on the health care package in the second and third year of the agreement and agreed to a 2.5% wage increase in the first year, 2.7% in the second and 3% in the third year.
According to Freightliner, improvements were also made in time off the job, pensions, and specific health care benefits.
The Sterling Truck plant builds about 70 medium- and heavy-duty trucks a day.
