Our members in Toronto working in the cafeteria food services at the Bridgepoint hospital ratified a new collective agreement on September 28, 2021. Wage increase will include a 2% increase to all classifications in 2021 retro to date of expiry and 2% in both years 2022 and 2023.

Other improvements include that the vison care entitlement will increase from $250 to $300 and new language will allow for all medical notes to be reimbursed up to $25 for an unlimited number of times throughout the term of the agreement. The safety shoe allowance will increase from $25 to $50. Bereavement day entitlement will increase from 3 to 4 days for immediate family members and from 1 to 2 days for step family members.
