The seven members who work at J&A Cleaning Solutions in Toronto have ratified a new collective agreement.

All steps of the wage grid will improve over the term of the agreement. Members at the top rate will receive an annual rate increase of between 2.7% and 2.9% in each of the three-years covered by the contract.

Language improvements at J&A Cleaning Solutions will see anti-slip shoes added to the scope of the safety shoe allowance. Members will benefit from a reduction in the time needed to qualify for a fifth week of paid vacation. In addition, a sixth week of vacation pay has been added as well.

The Union Negotiating Committee achieved a new six-month sunset clause on discipline where previously there was no such clause. Lastly, the new agreement will reflect gender neutral language throughout.

Members at J&A Cleaning Solutions ratified the new agreement on December 22, 2020.

Union Negotiating Committee: Rhonda Riberio, and Union Rep Todd Janes.
