The approximately 144 members of Local 633 working at Belmont Meat Products in Weston achieved a new collective agreement at a meeting held June 26, 2015.

The five-year contract sets out wage increases in each year with the first raise retroactive for hours worked since the expiry of the previous contract. Contributions to the medical and dental plan also increase over the duration of the agreement.

Improved language addresses job postings, child care, and overtime while new language includes provisions for job training at a higher classification.
