Improved Vacation Allotment and Wage Increases for Workers at Cherry Park Retirement Residence

In Penticton, BC, 100% of the Cherry Park Retirement Residence workers voted in favour of ratifying their new agreement that includes improved vacation allotment and wage increases.

Susan Sampson and Cindy Ferguson, who make up the Bargaining Committee, did a remarkable job ensuring that members get the improvements and increases they deserve.

The new contract has several changes, which include:
1.     wage increases;
2.     an improved vacation allotment and threshold; and
3.     domestic violence leave.

UFCW 1518 is in the process of finalizing a copy of the new agreement, which will be shared with the members at Cherry Park Retirement Residence as soon as it is available. Congratulations to the members on your new agreement!
