Employees of the TownePlace Suites hotel in Sudbury, Ont., signed a new collective agreement on March 9.

The new contract covers the hotel’s 25 workers — who are represented by the United Food and Commercial Workers Canada (UFCW), Local 1006A — and runs to Dec. 31, 2019.

“UFCW Canada, Local 1006A is proud to be Ontario’s best union for hotel workers seeking fairness, respect and dignity at work,” says UFCW Local 1006A President Wayne Hanley.

Highlights of the new contract include wage increases. The increase to $15 per hour is protected regardless if minimum wage goes up or not on Jan. 1, 2019 and the employees can now use one of two personal emergency days as a personal day or on their birthday, said the union.

The deal also brings an increase in employer contribution to the benefit plan to $180 per member per month, regular joint labour-management meetings will take place and minutes will be posted, according to the UFCW.
