A tentative settlement on a new collective agreement between General Motors Co and Canda's Unifor union was reached to cover employee benefits for GM's CAMI assembly plant located in Ontario, Canada. 

The union members would vote on the agreement at London, Ontario starting at 3 pm NY Time. This schedule was confirmed through an emailed statement from the Union. The details of the agreement would be released upon confirmation of the union members.

The plant at Ingersoll is a different bargaining unit from other GM factories represented by Unifor. Unifor was created by the merger of the Canadian Auto Workers and the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers union. The union represents about 2,500 employees in the GM Ingersoll facility in Ontario, which was confirmed by the automaker through a statement.

The other factories aside from Ingersoll reached a four year labor agreement in 2012, which decreased the hourly rate for new hires from CAD23,80 to CAD19,71.
