Wage increases in new deal for members working at J.C. Foods

Members working at J.C. Foods unanimously ratified a new one-year collective agreement. The new deal contains wage increases that range from $.40 to $1 per hour and maintains the fairness that has been built up over the years in the current collective agreement.

“This new deal builds on what we already have with J.C. Foods and brings in good wage increases that are well above the rate of inflation,” said Phil Kraychuk, Union Negotiator.

J.C. Foods Ltd. is a food processor of poultry products. Their products can be found in retail and fine dining establishments across Canada. Their only facility is in Winnipeg, Manitoba. UFCW 832 members work in production and prepare the products for distribution.
