McCains members ratify new deal

May 1, 2015

 After eight days at the bargaining table over a six month period, the negotiating committee presented a new three-year deal to the members, who ratified the deal by 77 per cent.

The negotiating committee had a strong 99 per cent strike mandate to take back to the table that helped the committee garner strong gains as well as prevent significant concessions wanted by the employer that would have had major effects on the workforce in the new agreement. The McCains’ plant in Carberry is home to over 230 UFCW Local 832. These members will see a 5.25 per cent wage increase over the life of the agreement.
