Mound Milk votes yes!

November 21, 2023: UFCW 832 members at Mound Milk voted in favour of their new, three-year contract, which includes a 5.5% wage increase in year one. 

“This group worked hard to get a fair deal,” says Joe Carreiro, Union Negotiator. “Wage increases were a top priority for these members but it’s nice to see some other benefits coming their way as well.”

Highlights from the newly ratified CBA include: 

  • increases to meal allowances,
  • new vision care benefit,
  • retro pay to November 1, 2023 and a 5.5% wage increase in year 1 as well as wage increases that will be a minimum of 2.5% in years two and three, and
  • overall language cleanup.

Our members at Mount Milk have class 1 licenses and pick up milk from producers in the southwest corner of the province and deliver it to Saputo in Brandon, where it is processed.
