TORONTO – Representatives from Unifor’s energy unions have ratified the tentative agreement that establishes the pattern for 8,500 members of the National Energy Program.
“Our energy members came together and used their collective power to make significant gains,” said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President. “Energy workers are a critical part of Canada’s economy.”
The four-year collective agreement covers Unifor members working in the sector across Canada. It includes gains in wages, severance, and a new framework for addressing domestic violence. Suncor was selected by Unifor as the chosen employer to set the pattern that will be rolled out to the remaining energy sector employers.
