3-year contract for members at National Diabetes Trust
Members of Local 175 at National Diabetes Trust in Toronto achieved several improvements in a ratified new three-year agreement.
Wages increase by 2% in each year of the contract term. Members benefit from a $250 signing bonus as well. In addition, members receive an increased boot allowance of $150 per year.
The negotiating committee achieved new language that restricts the use of agency workers at the workplace and ensures job protection of the current employees. Additional language maintains vacation entitlement for existing employees, which the employer had attempted to eliminate.
Union Negotiating Committee: Nicholas Dimakos, Union Rep Ali Farman, and Region 2 Director John DiNardo.
