Employees of Lomak Bulk Carriers Corp. have voted 93 per cent in favour of a renewed five-year collective agreement.
The employees are members of Transport, Construction, and General Employees’ Association, Local 66, affiliated with CLAC.
Highlights of the agreement include over 12 percent wage increases over the next five years, increases in RSP, vacation, and work wear allowances, as well as language updates that will allow members greater flexibility.
“We are very pleased with this round of bargaining,” says Audrey Wilkinson, CLAC representative. “By focusing on the issues that were important to our members, the bargaining committee was able to reach an agreement that allows for the long term stability for our members.”
