CAMBRIDGE—Unifor Local 999 members working in storage, transmission, and operations (STO) at Enbridge Gas have ratified a new collective agreement.

“Our members were united and showed great determination in their efforts to reach a fair and just collective agreement,” said Jeff Gray, President of Local 999.

The contract’s ratification puts an end to the 20-day strike and restores the safe and reliable operation of high pressure natural gas storage and transmission in the region, says Unifor.

The four-year collective agreement includes wage increases of up to 14% increase over the term of the agreement and adds September 30, the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, as a statutory holiday.

Local 999 represents more than 100 workers at Enbridge Gas facilities across Southwestern Ontario. Following failed negotiations last month, the union began legal strike action on May 25, 2022.

Unifor is Canada’s largest union in the private sector, representing 315,000 workers in every major area of the economy. The union advocates for all working people and their rights, fights for equality and social justice in Canada and abroad, and strives to create progressive change for a better future.
