On March 22, 2014, the UFCW Local 175 members at Ray Plastics in Rexdale, ratified a new three-year collective agreement. Workers receive a lump sum of $225 in the first year and subsequent increases totalling 80 cents per hour over the term of the contract.

Bereavement leave improves to provide five days’ paid leave, up from three, for the death of an immediate family member. Other language improvements address layoff and recall.

The company will contribute $1700 toward the Local 175 Training & Education Fund in each year of the agreement.
