Negotiations Sprout In the New Year at McCain

November 25, 2014

The union negotiating committee — Martin Trudel, John Anderson, Eileen Ball, Blaine Steen, and Julia Coleman — is set to begin bargaining with the McCain Foods in the New Year. The current collective agreement, representing approximately 225 Local 832 union members, expired in September.

In December, the union held a proposals meeting for the members at McCain and will be presenting their wish list to the employer at the first meeting on January 5, 2015. Some of the proposals on the list are aimed at making improvements to benefits, wages and contract language. The parties will continue negotiations on January 6, 13, 19 and 20, 2015.

Following the completion of the above-noted round of bargaining, the Local will provide an update to the members at McCain on their negotiations.
