Maple Reinders Employees Ratify New Contract

Mississauga, ON—Employees of Maple Reinders Constructors Ltd., a general contractor based in Mississauga, Ontario, voted 74 percent in favour of ratifying a three-year collective agreement providing them with significant wage increases and other improvements. New terms take effect May 1, 2024, and continue until April 30, 2027.

The employees are represented by Construction Workers Union, CLAC Local 52. The union has represented Maple Reinders employees in Ontario since 1970.

The new contract provides employees with total value increases ranging between 15.5 and 17 percent. Along with solid hourly pay increases each year, the new agreement also provides for improved employer contributions to employees’ pension plan, increased vision coverage under the healthcare benefits plan, and higher allowance for employee tool and boot purchases. Critically important were increased rates for mileage and living-out allowances.

“Maple Reinders employees work every day to build infrastructure vital to Ontario,” says Roger Grootenboer, CLAC representative. “This new contract recognizes their worth and provides them and their families with secure and stable income for both their present needs as well as the future.”

Maple Reinders is a leading company building infrastructure such as wastewater treatment plants and water treatment facilities, including current projects in Niagara Falls and Kitchener, Ontario.
