This provisional agreement is occurring against the backdrop of a continuing strike by US autoworkers against Ford, General Motors, and Stellantis plants. The US autoworkers are advocating for a substantial wage boost, approximating to an increase of 40 per cent.

Unifor, while not naming a specific percentage, has expressed its expectation of seeing notable salary increments. However, its demands extend beyond higher wages. Among its chief concerns are pension plans, job security, and aspects related to the shift towards electric vehicles.
