After a year of negotiations, Unifor, Local 707A and Suncor Energy Logistics reached a tentative agreement on March 19 for 13 workers at the East Tank Farm (ETF) facility north of Fort McMurray, Alta.
The first contract includes union recognition, a grievance procedure, statutory holiday pay up to 12 hours per day and the standard severance package for Unifor energy sector workers. Wage increases will be up to 5.6 per cent in the first year, then the prevailing Suncor increase for the remaining three years (to be negotiated in 2019), said the union.
Unifor also secured lump-sum payments for increases delayed since the union was certified in 2017.
