1,000 Magna workers at a plant that makes vehicle seating assemblies for General Motors and Fiat Chrysler walked out Nov. 6

WINDSOR, Ont.—Unionized workers at Magna International Inc.’s Canadian operations in Windsor, Ont., have reached a tentative agreement with the auto parts maker, ending a short strike.

Unifor spokesman Gord Gray said the 1,000 members working at the General Motors and Fiat Chrysler vehicle seating assembly lines at the Windsor plant walked out yesterday after nearly 58 per cent of workers rejected a previous tentative agreement.
