May 3, 2017 at 10:37am

The 72 members at Saturn Integrated Logistics in Toronto achieved their first collective agreement at a ratification vote held April 22, 2017. This contract took 26 days of bargaining over the last 14 months to achieve and it will see the members through to January 2020.

Wages improve by 2% retroactive for hours worked since February 1, 2017. Members also receive a lump sum payment of $325 following ratification. Subsequent increases are 2% in the second year and another 2% in the third year of the agreement term.

The Union negotiating committee bargained strong representation language including visitation rights and grievance procedures to ensure these workers have solid protections in place. The members also protected their vacation entitlement, statutory holiday language, and now have language protecting their jobs by controlling the employer’s use of temporary workers.

Union Negotiating Committee: Daniel Alcaide, Karamjot Gill, Andrew Robinson, Servicing Rep Meemee Seto, and Union Rep John DiFalco.
