Legion Village nursing home workers ratify two-year contract
The 40 members of Local 175’s HOPE sector at Legion Village in Cobourg achieved a new two-year collective agreement at a vote held August 6, 2014. These nursing care workers receive an across-the-board increase of 1.75% as of April 1, 2014 and a subsequent increase of 2% in the second year of the deal.
Improved language allows employees to split up all of their vacation entitlement into single days. In addition, the company will work to maintain all of the full-time positions it currently has.
Union Negotiating Committee: Angela Blezard, Lynda Farrell, Tracy Samis, and Union Rep Dean McLaren.
