Improved benefits, bereavement leave in new contract for Manitoulin hotel workers – Benefits Canada

March 21, 2019

Manitoulin Hotel and Conference Centre employees will see a 55 per cent increase in their health benefits reimbursement amount and an additional day of bereavement as part of their newly ratified union contract.

The contract, which covers 55 members of the United Food and Commercial Workers local 1006A, will run from Dec. 31, 2018 to December 2022.

Ric Pereira, the union representative and lead negotiator, says there was a strong consensus among members to accept the deal. “Often [when] collective agreements are ratified . . . they’re ratified but it leaves you with divided opinions among the group,” he says. “In this case, the deal was ratified at 95 per cent so it was definitely unified in approving the agreement.”
