TORONTO — Canadian auto workers overwhelmingly ratified a new contract with Chrysler Group LLC, the auto union said.

The Canadian Auto Workers union said Sunday that 90 percent of those voting approved the tentative deal reached last week. It was not immediately clear how many of the 8,000 workers at Chrysler’s plants in Ontario cast ballots in the ratification vote held over the weekend.
