Unifor members of Local 2107 have ratified a new four-year agreement with East Coast Credit Union in Antigonish, N.S.

Unifor represents 45 members working as financial services representatives, branch ambassadors and clearing representatives among other classifications.

The contract includes wage increases, including $1.25/hour more across all wages and 3% in the remaining three years. The gains include a $500 after tax signing bonus, five personal leave days, and vacation enhancements. For the first time, part-time workers will be able to access personal leave days.

“Getting the wages that reflected the cost-of-living was a priority for the bargaining committee,” said Unifor Local 2107 President Jennifer Benoit. “This agreement was positive for part-time, as well as full-time, and the first-year wages lift everyone equally.” 

The contract is retroactive to Jan. 1, 2023, and will expire on Dec. 31, 2026.
