New members of Unifor Local 1S working for GardaWorld ratified a new collective agreement on October 1.
“Unifor has a strong presence in security services,” said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President. “We’re proud of the Regina GardaWorld members for what they’ve accomplished in a first contract.”
Nearly 100 security screeners at the Regina International Airport joined Unifor earlier in 2018. Their new 3.5-year contract includes wage increases totalling 7.5 per cent. It also features improvements to the pension plan, gives greater flexibility to members scheduling vacation, and begins Paid Education Leave contributions from the employer.
“The bargaining committee did a skilled job of identifying the challenges and developing solutions,” said Dave Kuntz, Unifor Local 1S president. “We’re thrilled to welcome them to the Local 1S family.”
