Krown Members Vote Yes on 4-Year Agreement

October 19, 2017

UFCW Local 832 members working at Krown Produce voted in favour of a new four-year collective agreement by 100 percent.

At date of signing, each member received a $350 signing bonus as well as a two percent increase to their wages. Additional two percent increases on members’ wages are scheduled in each of the following three years of the four-year deal.

The union bargaining committee was also successful in doubling the amount of paid sick days to 32 hours, up from 16 hours. The minimum hours paid now paid for call-in shifts went up to fours hours, from three hours, as well as an increase to boot allowance for shipping and receiving.

Krown Produce provides retail, wholesale and distributors in Western Canada. UFCW members at the Winnipeg plant sort the fruits and vegetables from large containers to smaller ones, and then move them onto trucks for distribution.
