Strike Averted for FASD Office Workers

July 5, 2018

UFCW Local 832 union members working in the office at FASD Life’s Journey ratified a new collective agreement by 88 per cent.

After receiving a 100 per cent strike mandate, the union negotiating committee went back to the table and was able to secure a 2-year deal with no concessions. The new collective agreement contains an additional personal day, increased bereavement leave, improved vacation, and lots of language cleanup for efficiencies.
