Members at Laura’s YIG ratified a new contract with gains to wages. Ratified on June 12, 2016, the six year agreement expires on June 12, 2021 and covers 74 workers.
In a union, I don't have to fear being wrongfully fired because I know my back is covered. There are rules set up and people to make sure they're being followed. This provides the stability I need while I study without the fear of being wrongfully dismissed. The union has helped keep a stable, and reliable job which I attend school and I couldn't ask for anything more!" Laura Fisher, Loblaws Great Food Ottawa.
