Unifor Local 112 members of the Hilton Garden Inn Toronto-Mississauga ratified their first collective agreement after weeks of intense work and developed a section dedicated to Covid-19 on its National site. It contains useful information about the virus and the workplace. Unifor Locals across the country uses this information to support its members and work with employers. We invite you to refer to it regularly. It will be constantly updated as new information becomes available. Here is the link: www.unifor.org/COVID19 Local 2-S – E-Mail-unifor2s@sasktel.net or call 306-382-7555 We filed a complaint about this on October 31, directly at the third level of the claim procedure, which states that “the company has mistakenly interpreted the collective agreement on the EDO right/compensation for employees eligible to return to service after strike/lock-out.” The comparison sought is “a full remedy, as is appropriated by an arbitrator for each member who has violated his or her collective rights.” REGINA, October 20, 2019 /CNW/ – Unifor`s bargaining committees have signed preliminary agreements with SaskEnergy, SaskPower, SaskTel, SaskWater, DirectWest and SecureTek, ending a 17-day strike involving nearly 5,000 workers across the province. Members ratified the three-year contract on Wednesday, December 3. “This was a historic and complex round of negotiations, and the negotiating committees will recommend that members ratify today`s interim agreement,” said Scott Doherty, executive assistant to the National President. An interim agreement has been reached between the government and the union, which ends a 17-day strike. The union says ratification votes will take place this month. Until then, the details of the new agreement will not be made public. “These agreements were concluded because dedicated teams were committed to agreements that were fair and beneficial to both employees and businesses,” said Blair Swystun, President and CEO of Crown Investments Corporation.
