Company will now fully pay for employee benefits
The employees are represented by Construction Workers Local 52, affiliated with Christian Labour Association of Canada (CLAC).
Over the contract term, employees will receive wage increases of 6.5 per cent along with a change from 60 per cent to 100 per cent employer-paid benefit premiums. Other highlights include increases to employees’ boot allowance and clarification on layoff language.
"This was a successful round of negotiations for all parties involved," said Gord O'Coin, CLAC Sudbury and Northern Ontario regional director. "We were pleased with the positive results of our cooperative labour relationship."
CLAC is an independent Canadian labour union representing over 60,000 workers in a wide range of sectors-construction, healthcare, retail, service, transportation, manufacturing, and others.
