Workers at Elbee Meat Packers Ltd voted to accept a new union contract.
Ratified on June 21, 2018, the agreement runs from June 1, 2018 to May 31, 2021 and covers approximately 40 workers.
“Our negotiating committee worked hard to achieve significant gains for our membership at Elbee Meat Packers,” said President Wayne Hanley. “The outstanding union representation we provide on behalf of our members is why 1006A continues to be the number one union for workers in Ontario.”
Highlights of the agreement include wage increases, a drug card, improvement in bereavement pay, increased eye exam benefits and improvements to paid holiday language.
Negotiations were led by Union Representative Dustin Magee with support from members, Azaz Glwet and Carlton Chatrie.
