On February 6, 2013, bargaining unit members at Independent Linen in Ottawa met to review and vote on the terms of a newly negotiated renewal collective agreement.

Wages increase across the board by a total of 90 cents per hour over the term of the contract. The 46 workers benefit from the introduction of a new dental plan as part of their benefits.

Additionally, important language regarding dignity and respect in the workplace is now part of the contract.

Union Negotiating Committee: Mike McMeekan, David Post and Union Rep Simon Baker.
