In a meeting on Sunday, July 21, 2019, members of Unifor Local 5011, working at Wirecomm Systems ratified a 5-year collective agreement with their employer.
The new contract replaces the previous collective agreement, which had expired in April 2018, and marks the end of a challenging round of negotiations with the company. The contract includes protections against unjust wage deductions, and improves both hourly wages as well as per-unit rates for service and installation codes.
Wirecomm is a sole source contractor for Rogers Communications, providing service and installation to Rogers customers across the Greater Toronto Area.
