A tentative agreement has been reached for skilled trades workers at Canadian Engineering & Tool Co. Ltd. in Windsor.

Unifor Local 195 met with the employer and resumed talks Thursday night.

Members voted and ratified the new contract by 77 per cent.

The new three-year agreement includes improvements in wages and tool allowance.

Some of the 75 workers hit the picket lines on Sept. 3 after contract talks broke down the previous week.

This is the first strike at the Windsor plant since it opened in 1922.

Canadian Engineering does stamping for Ford and GM.
