Unifor National President Jerry Dias said Wednesday he is taking time off to deal with health issues.
The head of the union that represents hourly workers at Detroit 3 plants in Canada and thousands of workers at Canadian auto parts facilities, is currently serving a third and final term as head of Unifor.
“To my Unifor family: My Twitter account will be a little quiet for a while. I am taking some time off to deal with some health issues,” Dias said in a tweet Wednesday afternoon. He added he had “every confidence” in the union’s leadership team and staff during his absence.
