January 31, 2020

Members working at J.C. Foods unanimously ratified a new one-year collective agreement. The new deal contains wage increases that range from $.40 to $1 per hour and maintains the fairness that has been built up over the years in the current collective agreement.

"This new deal builds on what we already have with J.C. Foods and brings in good wage increases that are well above the rate of inflation," said Phil Kraychuk, Union Negotiator.
