WINNIPEG—The bargaining committee for Unifor members at Manitoba Hydro have signed a tentative agreement.
“Unifor members on the front-lines of gas services have earned a fair contract,” said Lana Payne, Unifor National President. “Public services workers were essential to the economy during COVID-19 and their contracts must reflect that.”
Details of the tentative agreement will be released following the membership ratification votes to be held during the coming week.
Members of Unifor Local 681 have been on rotating strikes since June 17, 2022.
