Yesterday, UFCW 832’s members from Dauphin Co-op ratified their four-year contract after a few months of intense bargaining.
“This group came into bargaining with conviction and the committee worked incredibly hard to get as much as they could for their co-workers,” says union negotiator Joe Carreiro.
Highlights from four-year deal include:
- addition of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation,
- increases to all premiums and a new 40-year+ long-service premium of $1
- 2% wage increases each year, drivers receiving additional increases up to 2.5%
- full retroactive pay and lump-sum payments of $100-$200.
UFCW 832 represents workers at Dauphin Co-op locations which include a grocery store with a deli and a baked-from-scratch bakery, two agro centres providing agricultural supplies and two gas bars.
