ArvinMeritor ratified a contract with the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) at its Commercial Vehicle Systems brake facility in Tilbury, Canada, on June 14. Employees at that facility had returned to work on June 12 after the union had reached a tentative agreement.
“While we regret any disruption and inconvenience this situation may have caused our customers, we have been working diligently over the last several weeks to approach full production speed at all our brake facilities,” said D. Mike Pennington, senior director of Global Marketing Communications and Industry Relations for Commercial Vehicle Systems.
“We continue to work closely with our customers to replenish their supply chains and our employees are intensely focused on returning operations to the level necessary to service and support our customers as quickly as possible. Our employees are working around the clock at all locations to reduce order backlogs and return to our normal delivery schedules. We are confident we will be up and running at normal levels shortly.”
