Unifor Local 1285 members at Martin Brower, who are warehouse workers and transportation drivers, have ratified a deal that includes a 22 per cent wage increase over the life of the agreement, job security protections, and pension and vacation improvements. 

“Warehouse workers and drivers are vital parts of Ontario’s supply chains—their crucial work deserves to be recognized with a strong collective agreement,” says Unifor National President Lana Payne. 

Unifor Local 1285 members deliver products to restaurants across the province and work in warehouses that store and distribute these products.

“Our members showed remarkable solidarity throughout the negotiation process and achieved a strong collective agreement as a result,” says Unifor Local 1285 President Vito Beato. “Gains made in wages, benefits, pensions, and job security are a testament to the collective strength and determination of our members." 

The new agreement, effective as of May 1, 2024, follows the expiry of the previous contract on April 30, 2024, and will remain in effect for the next three years.
