Site work has begun at Windsor’s multi-billion dollar LG and Stellantis electric vehicle battery plant as Local 793 members re-route major drains.

Brothers Mike Domingues and Jeremy Desjardins operate a CAT 336 excavator, while Ryan Beneteau operates a CAT rock truck.

The proposed design of the plant is to occupy 4.5 million square feet of space. Production operations are planned to launch in 2024, while the facility aims to be fully operational by 2025.
