Abednego Ford Oakville Assembly Complex became a member of Unifor Local 707 on April 11, 2014, and by November 30th, 2014 had successfully negotiated its first contract with the help of Unifor Local 707.

Abednego Wastewater Operators are responsible for operating the Ford Oakville Complex Industrial Wastewater treatment plant. Ford plant generates roughly 600,000 U.S. gallons per day of Industrial wastewater. Ford has formed an agreement with the City of Oakville to have a lower discharge rate than the Sewer By-Law limits. Abednego tests and treats the wastewater in accordance with the City sewer By-Laws and ensures that wastewater is processed well below the City sewer By-Law limits. Wastewater Operators work closely with the Paint department to ensure Ford has capacity especially during shutdowns and weekend maintenance.

Unifor Local 707 represents and supports approximately 120 Leadec Industrial Services workers.
