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

UFCW 1006A members at Homewood Suites and Hampton Inn Toronto Airport continue to make significant gains as they ratified their new union contract.

The term of the contract is from February 1, 2024, to January 31, 2028 and covers approximately 50 workers at two locations.

“UFCW 1006A is Ontario’s best union for hotel workers, with a strong track record of helping our members in the sector achieve fair wages, benefits and working conditions,” said President Wayne Hanley. “I am proud to congratulate our members on their achievement and thank our negotiating committee for their hard work and commitment throughout this process.”

The negotiating committee includes members, Monica Arioli, Sonia Hinds, Drucila Joseph-Edgar, Taneisha Nembhard, Kevin Thompson and Union Representatives, Joe Blythe and Diana O’Brien. 

“This was my first negotiations, and it was an eye-opening experience for me,” said Drucila Joseph-Edgar, a union steward at the hotel. “Our committee worked hard and did our best to represent the workers.”
