Wage increases and pension gains are highlights of a new three-year contract ratified this week by members of Unifor Local 914.

“These were tough negotiations during a turbulent period for the company. The bargaining committee successfully struck a balance between achieving gains for the short term and stability for the future,” said Tom Rinker, Unifor Local 914 President.

The contract secures 12% wage increases over three years, augments the pension plan, introduces a heath spending account, and adds vacation time for new workers. 

Local 914 represents 163 members at the Arlanxeo Manufacturing Plant in Sarnia producing butyl and butadiene rubber products.
