October 27, 2021

The members at Bee-Clean Building Maintenance Sault Ste. Marie have ratified a first collective agreement with a three-year term on October 17, 2021. Members will see increases of $.50 in Year 1 retroactive to date of certification (September 20, 2020), $.30 in Year 2 and $.30 in Year 3. The night shift will have a premium of $.50 and the team leader premium will be $.75.

The members will now have an RRSP matching program and will be enrolled in the UFCW trusteed benefit plan.

With the new first agreement members have secured language for seniority, scheduling, a grievance procedure, bereavement leave and the addition of a civic stat and floating holiday. The members will also have two paid sick days.

Language was also negotiated to define permanent sites that will provide the members with the security that they won’t be moved around to sites arbitrarily.

Union Negotiating Committee: Jason Bardawill and Roxanne Liezert. Union Rep: Jim Hames.
