On Wednesday, May 14th, the PASA-USB bargaining committee (Local 147) ratified a new 4-year collective agreement with the employer.

The contract includes a 2% wage increase in each year of the agreement and an increase of Family days from three to five per year. There is also a signed letter of agreement requiring the employer to hire a consultant to study the current classification system and pays scales. This consultant will make recommendations on changes needed to put some logic and fairness into both. The results will be used to make some changes in the next round of bargaining.

The new agreement is now being prepared and members of Locals 147 are encouraged to update their contact information to ensure they receive a copy of the new contract once available.
