Local 1006A members working at Swiss Chalet have ratified a new union contract.
The contract covers approximately 2,200 workers and runs from June 1, 2019 to May 31, 2024.
“I’m proud to congratulate our negotiating committee for achieving a fair and strong contract for our members at Swiss Chalet,” said President Wayne Hanley. “These were challenging negotiations but as always, our committee members worked tirelessly to protect members’ interests and rights in the face of a changing restaurant industry. Thank you to all our members who participated and made their voices heard during the negotiations process.”
The committee achieved several gains including: all eligible members being covered under the benefit plan (improved language), increases to shoe allowance for all members, and improvements to the wage grid.
Negotiations were led by Executive Assistants to the President Frank Ragni and Dan Gilbert, with support from Union Reps Rick Del Fiacco, Joe Blythe, Daiana Dumitru, Roland Lapins, Gord Albert, Greg Penner and Carla MacFarlane and members, Kim Desroche, Brian Dulong, Anita Hurley, Mattea Quakenbush, Alyssa Del Fiacco, Danielle Hayes, Phyllis Hannivan, and Frank Tamburini.
