New 3-year deal for Aramark members in Winnipeg

Agreement includes retroactive wage increases

Workers at Aramark Refreshments in Winnipeg unanimously voted in favour of a new three-year collective agreement May 24 that promises wage increases and benefit improvements, said the union.

The new contract — for members of United Food and Commercial Workers Canada (UFCW) Local 832 — provides a 2.5 per cent wage increase in each year of the agreement, with the first increase retroactive to Oct. 1, 2016. The agreement also contains increases to the footwear allowance, dental benefits and employer contributions to members’ RRSPs, according to UFCW.

The deal — ratified earlier in May — also includes wording for the payout of any unused vacation, said the union.
