Compass members ratify a great, new CBA

October 12, 2023 — After rejecting their first two offers and voting in overwhelming favour of strike action, UFCW 832’s 22 foodservice members at Compass Group Canada voted in favour of a new collective bargaining agreement (CBA). 

“This round of bargaining was difficult but our committee member Marmie stayed dedicated to getting her colleagues a great new deal,” says Phil Kraychuk, union negotiator. 

Highlights from the three-year agreement include: 

  • Retroactive pay
  • 15.25% in wages over the term of the agreement with 10.5% or more in the first year 
  • Increases to their meal allowance, sick time and an added $1 to night premiums 
  • New shoe allowance 
  • The ability to keep their tips
