Unifor Local 101R members ratified a new collective agreement reached with the Toronto Terminals Railway (TTR) last week.
“This is an agreement our membership can be proud of, and with a 92% approval, we want to thank our members for showing so much solidarity to support the bargaining committee,” said Joel Kennedy, President of Local 101r.
Unifor Local 101R Lodge 60 represents more than 95 workers at TTR who provide a switching service at the Ports in the Vancouver Lower Mainland.
The new agreement includes wage increases that match the Unifor four year rail pattern.
Members will also receive a $1000.00 signing bonus plus retroactive pay to January 1, 2019.
Some of the other improvements include increases to Weekly Indemnity Benefits, Dental Plan, Orthodontics, Bereavement and a 8-day Spare board guarantee, as well as calling and cancelling wage protections.
