OTTAWA (AFP) - Canadian autoworkers have agreed on a new labour contract with Chrysler, averting a sector-wide strike after signing similar deals with Ford and General Motors last week, their union said on Wednesday.

"We are satisfied that we have a reasonable deal and... that Chrysler can grow in Canada," Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) president Ken Lewenza told reporters.

The CAW union had reached a tentative agreement with Ford on Sept 17, which employees have ratified.

Three days later, the union also reached an agreement with General Motors.
