Unifor Local 4501 members at Taylor Ford & Lincoln in Moncton, New Brunswick have voted in favour of a new four-year contract. The 37 members, including technicians and workers in the quick lube and parts departments, ratified the collective agreement on August 16, 2018.
“It was a tough negotiation,” said Local 4501 President Jake Despres. “The company brought a long list to the table but in the end they didn’t get any of their demands, while we achieved gains.”
The agreement improves guaranteed hour provisions, maintains sick days and contains annual wage increases of 2.5, 2.5, 2.5 and 3 per cent over the life of the contract.
