Agreement ratified by Coca-Cola workers in Sault Ste Marie & Sudbury
A new five-year agreement for the more than 20 workers at Coca-Cola facilities in Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie was ratified on April 25, 2016.
Wages increase by 5.5% over the life of the deal and members receive an additional lump sum payment of $600 in the second year. Workers receive an improved Safety Boot Allowance of $175 per year, up from $155. This amount increases in 2018 to $185. There is an increase to the Short-Term Disability (STD) Benefit and new vacation language that allows for more weeks available in ‘prime time.’ Other language improvements increase the number of bargaining committee members to four, up from three.
