Last week, July 13 – 15, UFCW Local 401 Canada Malting members voted to accept their new Collective Agreement.
“My congratulations go out to the member at Canada Malting. They have ratified their new contract by a vote of 76%.” Stated Chris O’Halloran, UFCW Local 401 Executive Director and lead negotiator for this round of bargaining.
The new contract brings three significant improvements for the workers at Canada Malting. Wages. Benefits. And Pension improvements.
Canada Malting members will be receiving:
The new contract brings a new $200.00 Health Spending account to your benefits package.
Both changes will take effect on August 29, 2022.
“This new deal sees a monetary increase to wages, pension, and benefits. As well as improvements to posting language, maintenance coverage language, employee rights and many union rights,” said O’Halloran. “I’m especially pleased to see the almost 14% increase for the packaging employees!”
The 401 Canada Malting employees won several other changes to the contract that will work to make the workplace run smoother for employees.
