Westfair members in Manitoba ratify new five-year collective agreement “We are pleased that an agreement was reached that was fair to both parties,” said Gerry Onyskevitch, Executive Director of the Co-op. “Our final offer reduces the pay gap between longer-term employees and those who have been hired recently.” “Together, we have managed to overcome many of the employer`s proposed concessions, including the elimination of sick hours, longer wait times for short-term disability benefits, the removal of the overtime bank, substantial reductions in bereavement, benefits and urgent forced leave. At the end of the negotiations, the members were able to retain all their advantages without concessions,” said Norm Neault, UFCW, President of Local 1400. The new agreement provides for wage increases of 2.75 per cent in years 1, 3 and 5 of the contract and 2.5 per cent in years two and four. In addition, members are receiving improvements in boot allowance and the seniority clause has been extended, the union said.
