TORONTO - Unionized workers at Chrysler's Ontario plants have accepted a new contract with the automaker.

The workers voted 90 per cent in favour of the tentative deal which was reached last week.

It was not immediately clear how many of the 8,000 workers at Chrysler's plants in Toronto, Brampton and Windsor cast ballots in the ratification votes held this weekend

The four-year deal includes lump sum payments as well as job security provisions.

It also pays new employees less and extends the time it takes them to get to the top of the pay scale.

The deal is based on agreements already accepted by CAW members at Ford and General Motors.

Chrysler was the last of the Big Three North American automakers to hammer out a contract.

Organizations: Ford, General Motors, Big Three North American
