On January 20, 2011, a three-year collective agreement was ratified by the hospitality workers at the Holiday Inn in Mississauga. The 35 members benefit from the following contract improvements:
- Wages increase across the board by 1.5 per cent in the first year, 1 per cent in January 2012 and another 1 per cent in July 2012, 1 per cent in January 2013 and 2 per cent in July 2013.
- Houseperson staff assigned to deliver or remove a cot/crib, fridge or microwave from a room will receive a 75 cent payment for that assignment.
- New language provides full-time workers who change to part-time status with their full seniority up to the new part-time seniority date. Part-time workers who change to full-time will be credited with 50% of their service as their new full-time seniority date.
- Other language improvements address representation, overtime and the negotiating committee.
