February 4, 2022

The members from GDI Services working at the Pickering Town Centre have ratified a new three-year deal on February 1, 2022.

Wage improvements are as follows: Year 1 – $.50 (split into 2 increases), Year 2 – $.60 cents (split into 2 increases), Year 3 – $.70 (split into 2 increases).

Other improvements include an increased boot allowance to $80 at 100% reimbursement and meal allowance will now be $15 up from $10.

Members will now be entitled to 5 weeks of vacation after 15 years, there will be the addition of one floater/sick day and the bereavement allowance will increase from 3 to 5 days.

We are happy to report that an RRSP plan that the employer will match (1% of gross wages) will be introduced. This was a very important item for our members as they have been trying to achieve this for many years and they will now have another way to help save for retirement,
