Workers at Lear Ajax are looking at a possible plant closure. About 320 members of Unifor Local 222 have been on strike since April 28, and have reportedly been told to accept the latest offer or the facility will be shut down. A tentative deal was rejected by workers on May 1st, with wages being the main issue of contention. The Ajax workers reportedly earn $4.60/hour less than Lear workers in Whitby. The Ajax plant manufactures seats for the Chrysler plant in Brampton.
