Unifor Locals 112 and 673 negotiated tentative agreements on Oct. 16 with MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates (MDA) after more than one month of bargaining.
The previous collective agreements with MDA expired Aug. 4, but were extended while a new contract was negotiated, said the union.
Negotiations between Unifor and MacDonald Dettwiler began Sept. 11, with a tentative agreement being reached after a conciliator was brought in, according to Unifor.
No details of the tentative agreement will be released until after workers have voted and ratified to accept. A vote of the membership will be held on Oct. 18.
