The deal must now be put to a vote among union members.

Negotiations between Fiat Chrysler and Unifor came after the union struck a deal last month with Ford Motor, creating a template for talks with other Detroit automakers.

Unifor entered this year's negotiations with concerns about restoring the third shift at Fiat Chrysler's facilities in Windsor and Brampton, Ont.

The union said on Wednesday that negotiations continued through Thanksgiving weekend as Fiat Chrysler objected to elements of the union's deal with Ford, including wages and benefits. .

The agreement with Ford includes plans for the production of batteries for electric vehicles, as well as investments from the federal and Ontario governments.
