Norpro Security ratifies and achieves health and welfare benefit coverage

Norpro Security ratifies in Sault Ste. Marie to achieve a two-year agreement on January 15, 2024.

Members will receive wage increases in Year 1 of $1.10/hour for all classifications. Thereafter wage increase will be dependant upon minimum wage increases, with minimum wage plus language guarantees negotiated.

A new benefit plan includes life insurance, prescription and dental coverage, optical care allowance, and out of country insurance. This is a significant and sought out achievement for the membership

Other language improvement include:

  • Boot allowance of $100 for industrial guards.
  • New language for an online bulletin board and email of union notices and job postings as members work at various locations and a static bulletin board is not easily accessible.
