The Unifor bargaining committee representing 169 workers at the Nanticoke Imperial Oil facility in Nanticoke, Ont., reached a tentative collective agreement with the employer May 16.
"I'm very proud of the skill shown by the bargaining team to get us a fair deal that matches the pattern Unifor set in the industry," said Dan Valente, Unifor national representative.
Unifor bargained a pattern agreement for the energy and chemical sector in 2016. The Nanticoke agreement will be consistent with the gains made in the pattern agreement, said the union.
The local's membership will vote on the tentative agreement on May 18. The current collective agreement expired more than one year ago and bargaining has been periodic since March 2016.
Local 900 represents employees working in operations, laboratory, maintenance instrumentation and electrical.
