Ratification: Ross Place Seniors Residence Society
Local 501 members at Ross Place Retirement Residence in Victoria voted overwhelmingly in favour of a new 3-year contract providing wage increases of 2%/yr. over the term as well as market adjustments for 3 classifications. Other improvements include a night-shift premium for housekeeping staff, enhanced vacation, double pay for Christmas Day, and improved transportation allowance. Thanks goes out to bargaining committee members Nicole Stec (steward) and Mark Onda.
