The members of Local 175 working in the office at Katoen Natie in Mississauga, ratified a new three-year collective agreement at a meeting held January 27.

Workers all receive a lump sum payment of $850 per year of the contract term. Vacation accrual improves to provide five weeks after 12 years’ service, instead of the previous 15, and six weeks after 16 years’ service, instead of the previous 20 years required. Language improvements address bereavement, probationary period, the training and education fund as well as printing of the collective agreement.

Union Negotiating Committee: Susie Chasapis, Nicole Spencer and Union Rep Tim Deelstra.
