LCBO casual workers in Ontario achieve equal pay for equal workEmployers need to be ‘constantly vigilant’ about compensation for groups: LawyerBy John Dujay04/03/2017|Canadian HR Reporter|Last Updated: 03/30/2017 The fight to achieve equal pay for equal work took another step forward after a ruling compelled the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) to pay casual workers the same rate as full-time workers.An agreement reached Nov. 7, 2016, was finalized after an arbitration hearing Feb. 4, 2017. All permanent full-time, part-time and casual customer service representatives of the LCBO were placed on the same pay grid, eliminating a practice that saw casual employees paid less for undertaking essentially the same work. With this new grid, about 77 per cent of casuals (4,224 of 5,509) will see a wage increase, with an immediate average raise of 9.5 per cent. As well, the 220 permanent full-time consumer service reps who are not currently at the top of the grid would receive raises, with an average increase of 7.7 per cent.
