TORONTO (Reuters) - Fiat Chrysler Automobiles <FCAU.N> has not yet reached a deal with unionized workers in Canada ahead of a midnight strike deadline, the union said in a briefing on Monday, adding that workers were prepared to walk off the job.

Any strike by more than 9,000 of the company's Canadian workers would disrupt production of minivans built in Windsor, Ontario, including the new Chrysler Pacifica, as well as sedans assembled in Brampton, Ontario.
