Laval, July 27, 2020 – Workers at the Robert Transport warehouse, Exceldor division in Beloeil, ratified their first collective agreement yesterday. The contract was ratified by nearly 90% of the company’s 30 or so employees.
Wage increases totalling 8% were obtained for 2 years and 7 months, in addition to 12 statutory holidays and two family days with cash value.
This group of workers became members of Teamsters Local Union 106 last December. The pandemic delayed negotiations a little.
“Joining the most powerful union in North America has many advantages,” notes Teamsters Local Union 106 President Jean Chartrand. “One of them is being able to negotiate a good first work contract. »
“Congratulations to the bargaining committee and the members for their good work and solidarity.”
The Teamsters Union represents the interests of 125,000 members in Canada. They are affiliated with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, which has 1.4 million members in North America.
