Ontario's Union for fairness, equality and respect at work.

UFCW 1006A members working at Canadian Linen (Norfinch and Atomic locations) have ratified a new union contract with gains.

“What we got in the first year of the contract was great,” said Isabel Rodrigues, a member of the negotiating committee and a steward. “Our negotiating committee pushed the company as hard as we could – there was room for more improvements, but we can’t always get everything we want.” 

The term of the contract is from January 1, 2024 to December 31, 2027 and covers 160 members.

Members of the negotiating committee include Maria Rosa Cardoso, Pubalan Ramiah, Isabel Rodrigues and Francesca Sesti and union representatives, Jonathan Lobo and Joshua Robichaud.

“I am proud to congratulate our members at Canadian Linen for achieving a fair union contract with strong wage increases,” said President Wayne Hanley. “UFCW 1006A is proud to be the best union for laundry workers in Ontario. Union representation is vital in empowering workers to improve their livelihoods, workplaces and communities.”


  • Wage increases of 14.75 per cent over term of the union contract.
  • Increase to safety shoe allowance.
  • Increase to health & welfare benefits
  • An additional statutory holiday/floater day for National Day for Truth & Reconciliation
