Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV reached a tentative agreement with workers in Canada that includes more than C$400 million ($300 million) in total investment.

The automaker agreed to spend C$325 million on rebuilding the paint shop at the Brampton, Ontario, assembly plant that makes the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger and Challenger models, Unifor National President Jerry Dias told reporters in Toronto, minutes before a midnight Monday strike deadline. The deal is subject to an Oct. 16 ratification vote by about 9,750 members.
