Workers at Northmount Pharmacy in North Vancouver have voted in favour of a new contract featuring wage increases, bonuses, and important health and safety upgrades.
UFCW 1518 bargaining committee member Shannon Schieck worked closely with co-workers and union negotiators to negotiate a strong new collective agreement that addresses several workplace concerns. The new Northmount contract will raise wages for all members and increase health and safety at the site.
Some of the highlights of the new agreement include:
- a $750 Signing Bonus
- Wage Increases for all members
- Added health and safety language
- Anti-fatigue mats
- Language around noise levels
- Additional leave provisions
- And more!
The employer and union negotiators are finalizing the contract and will share it with members when it is ready. Northmount Pharmacy members will also be able to find a copy of their contract at memberresourcecentre.com.
