Member’s at Dean’s Valu-Mart in Wingham achieved a new collective agreement on February 9, 2017.

The contract provides end-rate wage increases for both full and part-time employees totalling $1.20 per hour over the term, including 30 cents per hour in the first year. Part-time wage progressions receive additional adjustments as they accrue seniority to ensure that employee’s wages remain above the minimum wage set by the province.

Members will receive RRSP contributions from the employer twice during the life of the contract. Additional language ensures that Sunday work remains voluntary.

Union Negotiating Committee: Alison Hallam, Patricia Mathers, and Union Rep Diane Sanvido.
