Warehouse workers at the Beer Store in Ontario ratify contract

Collective agreement
More full-time positions, higher benefits, wages in deal: UFCW

Warehouse clerks at The Beer Store in London and Windsor, both in Ontario, voted unanimously on April 6 to ratify their second collective agreement as members of United Food and Commercial Workers union (UFCW) Canada, Local 12R24.

The Beer Store warehouse clerks in London and Windsor voted to join the union in May 2016.

“This is a great contract for the membership,” said Lauren Hamilton, UFCW 12R24 union steward and bargaining committee member. “In this agreement, we were able to achieve more full-time and permanent part-time positions, increased benefits, and significant wage gains for all members.”

UFCW Canada Local 12R24 represents more than 6,000 employees working at The Beer Store in the province of Ontario.
