Workers at Wings of Power Ratify New Collective Agreement

Tuesday, May 26, 2020 – UFCW 832 members working at Wings of Power ratified a new one-year Collective Agreement by mail-in ballot.

This new agreement brings 1.5% in wages, cleans up language and addresses a number of issues members were having regarding using their personal vehicles for work.

“This membership provides vital services in a small rural Manitoba setting that helps other members of the community prosper,” said Phil Kraychuk, Union Negotiator. “During the COVID-19 pandemic, these members are doing incredible work.”

This CBA was bargaining entirely through remote-meetings and using online tools to ensure we followed public health advice during COVID-19. All communication with the membership was done via mail, email and telephone town halls.

Wings of Power is a grassroots community and family-based resource centre, with a parent-child focus. They strive to empower families by partnering with community resources to enhance wellness, learning, and growth opportunities for children and families in our community. UFCW 832 members work in day programs and group homes located in Pine Falls, Manitoba. They assist supported individuals with day-to-day living at the group homes and provide programing activities in the day program.
