Members working at Parmalat in Sudbury, at the plant and as drivers, met on December 16, 2014 to ratify a new three-year collective agreement. The approved contract will see employees receive increases of 2% in each year of the term in addition to increased long-term disability and vision care coverage. Dental benefits will improve to provide coverage with a one-year Ontario Dental Association (ODA) lag. In addition, language improvements reduced sunset clause by six months.

Union Negotiating Committee: Martin Dauphinais, Dan O`bonsawin and Union Rep Matt Belanger.
