Under the new contract, the United Food and Commercial Workers Canada (UFCW) Local 832 members will see wages increase by 10.25 per cent. Other monetary increases include: improved dental plan and RRSP contributions, an enhanced shoe allowance and added coverage to existing health and welfare benefits, said the union.

“We didn’t give the company any concessions, and we managed to improve language in other areas of the contract,” said Martin Trudel, UFCW 832 head negotiator.
