Employees who work at the Ingredion Canada corn processing plant in Cardinal, Ont., voted 83 per cent in favour of a new collective agreement on April 17.
“We were successful in fighting off concessions proposed by the company and made some real gains for our hard-working members,” said Joe Roode, Unifor, Local 483 president.
The agreement includes improved language, benefits and a 2.5 per cent wage increase in each year of the four-year agreement, said the union.
Trade workers will also see an additional increase of $0.50 in the second year of the contract. This equates to an average increase in wages of about $3.80 an hour during the term of the agreement, said Unifor.
The union represents 143 workers at the plant.
