On April 10, UFCW 832’s members at Brandon Community Options voted yes to a new, three-year agreement.

Highlights of the three-year CBA include: 

  • $0.20/hour up-front on wages and retroactive pay
  • New long service premium of up to $1.00 per hour 
  • Increased sick time 
  • Increased mileage and mileage payment when workers are required to move locations
