Masterfeeds Members Ratify 4yr Deal

Red Deer, AB – May 27th, 2019

Employees at Masterfeeds in Red Deer have ratified their new four-year contract (3 years going forward) by 100%.

Highlights of the new deal include improved grievance and arbitration language along with enhanced safety language. Financial highlights include better bereavement leave and pay as well as a drug card and retroactive wage increases. Employees will get a 5% wage increase immediately.

It was a sensitive set of bargaining this time for the committee as they wanted to push the Company for the best possible deal, but the closure of the Edmonton facility was always in their minds.

Great job to the committee!
