Production will resume at a Coca-Cola bottling facility in Brampton, Ont., on Monday, ending a three-week strike at the company's largest Canadian plant.

A spokesman for the Canadian Auto Workers says a new three-year deal for 700 union workers was approved by a strong majority.

Jerry Dias says pension benefits and concerns over outsourcing were the biggest issues that have now been resolved in the new agreement.

The new deal at the plant just northwest of Toronto also includes wage increases.
