Members at the Copper River Inn and Conference Centre in Fort Frances achieved a new four-year collective agreement recently.

This round of bargaining required the assistance of a Conciliation Officer to come to an agreement on a number of issues. Members at the Copper Inn ratified the resulting agreement on December 16, 2019.

The wage grid improves to provide Housekeeping employees with Base Wage (BW) plus 50 cents per hour after 2,000 hours of work. That rate improves to BW plus $1 per hour after 4,000 hours of work.

Front Desk Clerks receive BW plus 25 cents per hour after 2,000 hours. After 4,000 hours the rate increases to BW plus 50 cents per hour. Both Line Cooks and Lead Chefs will receive BW plus $1 after 2,000 hours, and BW plus $1.25 per hour after 4,000 of work.

After one year of employment, members will have the option to take part in the company’s health benefit plan.

Union Negotiating Committee: Charleen Mallory, Union Rep Tracy Stubbs, and Executive Assistant to the President, Sylvia Groom.
