Canada Catering Employees Unanimously Ratify New Contract

Meaford, ON—Employees of Canada Catering Co., a Division of Brown’s+ Plus Inc., working at CFB Meaford voted unanimously in favour of ratifying a three-year collective agreement providing them with wage increases and other improvements.

The 22 unionized employees are represented by Healthcare and Service Workers Union, CLAC Local 304. The union has represented them since 1996.

The new contract provides employees with an 11 percent wage increase over the term. In addition, the 15-year step on the wage grid was dropped to 3 years. The agreement also provides a new lead-hand premium and increases to the life insurance payout amount, AD&D insurance coverage, and the shoe allowance.

“The union bargaining team identified wage increases as the priority goal for this round of negotiations, given the continued high cost of living,” says Patricia Pot, CLAC representative. “We’re pleased that we were able to meet our members’ needs and expectations with this new contract and with the unanimous support from the membership.”
