FirstOntario Ratifies New 3 Year Collective Agreement

After a tough set of negotiations, the membership at FirstOntario have ratified their new three year Collective Agreement. The agreement sees a 4.5% wage increase, plus $0.35 COLA fold-in, in the first year; with 2.5% in year two and 2% in year three. The Bargaining Committee also secured benefit increases for full and part time employees, an additional paid float day, a retirement incentive increase, increased vacation bonus entitlements, and an $850.00 signing bonus.

On top of language housekeeping, the Union also secured National Truth and Reconciliation Day as a stat holiday,

I would like to thank Rose McIntosh, Kelly House, Alysia Guiseppi, Patrick Buchinski and Rayna Fleming for their hard work and dedication on behalf of the membership.
