  • Family Day has been added as a paid holiday.
  • The company will direct a portion of its 65 cents per hour Canadian Commercial Workers Industry Pension Plan (CCWIPP) contribution to the CCWIPP Stabilization Fund.
  • Dental contributions increase to 38 cents per hour over the course of the contract.
