EPIC St. Malo members, who support clients with intellectual disabilities, will receive a 3% wage increase over two years. They also negotiated:

  • An increase to their RRSP contributions
  • Improvements to their dental plan
  • More money for education and training opportunities
  • Increase to the training premium
  • A long service premium increase
  • A long service severance bonus

These new benefits are retroactive to April 1, 2020.

“EPIC members in St. Malo work incredibly hard,” said Phil Kraychuk, Union Negotiator. “They didn’t give up on the negotiations or on their rights as workers even during these difficult times. They have a stronger workplace now because of it.”
