January 27, 2021

In this round of bargaining with Imperial Parking in Toronto, the Union sought the assistance of a Conciliation Officer. The resulting agreement provides for wage increases and improved language addressing a number of employee concerns.

The Union Negotiating Committee achieved important language that will no longer permit the company to take pictures of employees through its app to determine Time and Attendance. A further improvement means that new pandemic language will now form part of the agreement. Plus, the new agreement will be gender neutral throughout.

Members in all job classifications at Imperial Parking will receive a 3% wage increase in each year of the agreement term. The first increase will be paid for all hours worked since June 1, 2020.

Premiums for both night shift and training will improve. Members will now receive a premium of $1.50 per hour, instead of $1.15, for hours worked between 10 p.m. and 7 p.m. Those members assigned to train an employee will also receive a premium of $1.50 per hour, up from $1.

All employees at Imperial Parking Toronto will benefit from an additional paid sick day per year. This brings the total paid sick days for these employees to nine per year. In addition, employer contributions to the members’ Health & Welfare Benefit Plan will increase for both part and full-time employees.

Members ratified the agreement, which covers about 60 bargaining unit employees at Imperial Parking, on January 24, 2021.

Union Negotiating Committee: Daud Hassan, Idris Nurhussein, Jim Ramsey and Union Representatives Sabrina Qadir and John Di Falco.
