Windsor Grain Terminal (ADM) members ratified a five-year agreement on May 18, 2023. Members will receive significant wage increases of 17% over the term of the agreement.  Maintenance will receive an additional $5.00/hour above the general wage increase. Lead hand premium will be $3.00/hour and there will be a $ 1.00/hour premium for Central Operators.

A letter of understanding was introduced to allow for employees to voluntarily take a day off Monday to Friday in order to work both Saturday at 1 ½ times the rate and Sunday at double time. Workers can make this choice on a weekly basis and it is always voluntary. We were also able to avoid a continental work week, a sought-after change by the employer.

There are also major improvements to the vacation language which will allow for more flexibility for the membership.
