Members of Unifor Local 1996-O voted 100% in favour of a new collective agreement that secures better benefits and significant wage increases.

The 4-year deal, retroactive to January 7, 2023, delivers 3.25% wage increases in each year of the contract.

"With better pay, benefits, and the security to continue working from home, BTS clerical members have a great contract that they can rely on for the next several years,” said Lee Zommers, Unifor Local 1996-O President. “Not only will members see the difference in wage increases, but they now have access to improved retirement security at the end of their careers.”

Additional highlights of the deal include:

  • Anti-Racism Advocate
  • Introduction of a DC pension plan with increased employer contributions
  • More full-time positions including 1-time ratification upgrades
  • Improved work-life balance

The contract covers approximately 50 Bell Technical Solutions clerical workers, members of Local 1996-O.
