Agreement at Tora Inc Ratified
Unifor 199 members voted 89% in favour to accept a new three year agreement and avoid a work stoppage at Tora Inc. The new agreement included; wage increases for seniority workers and new hires each year. Increase in life insurance coverage, increase in travelling allowance. The bargaining committee also negotiated improved vacation language which included an extra week for seniority workers and a signing bonus in lieu of retroactive pay. I would like to thank the membership for their support throughout the bargaining process. Special thanks to the Bargaining Committee; Barb Brennen Chairperson, Dan McNeil Committeeperson, and National Rep Doug Orr for their hard work.
