The wage improvements include: lump sum payments equal to $.40 per hour worked payable quarterly in year two and hourly increases of $.45 across the board in year three and $.50 in years four and five.

Benefit improvements will see the dental maximums increase from $2000 to $2500 and the vision care benefit increases from $275 to $325 both effective Jan 1, 2022. Employees will have access to two unpaid bereavement days in addition to their paid bereavement day entitlement.

Language changes will allow the drivers to qualify for a second shift bid which already applies to Jockeys. The language in the agreement will now reflect gender neutrality throughout.

Additionally, pandemic pay language will be added to provide for discussions to take place regarding additional pay during a declared pandemic.

The yearly contribution to the training and education fund increases from $2,000 to $2,500
