These workers deserve to participate in the awards of one of the fastest growing companies in North America, and I think this interim agreement recognizes that,” said Russ Day, president of Local 601. The contract includes salary increases of 2.5, 2.75, 3 and 3.5 percent over the duration of the contract as well as new rules for overtime. According to the union, the new agreement is in line with the energy model agreement negotiated by Unifor in May 2019. The national model between Unifor and Suncor established a framework for local negotiations on wages, severance pay and a new energy structure to combat domestic violence. The model includes 8500 energy workers in five provinces. For more information, please contact Denise Hammond, Unifor`s Director of Communications, at [email protected] or 416-707-5794 (cell). .
