Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC) Adjustors ratified a new five-year contract earlier today.

Their new five-year agreement (effective March 22, 2014 - March 29, 2019) includes general wage increases in each year, improvements to the health spending account, the introduction of a direct-pay prescription drug plan, a stipend to address clothing, footwear and fuel costs, and employment security provisions for the life of the agreement.

Now that the contract is ratified, the MASC Adjustors Bargaining Committee will be meeting with their employer to finalize and then sign the agreement for printing and distribution to members.

These MGEU members help in delivering the crown corporation’s many agricultural services – including field inspections and claim adjustments on crop insurance programs offered through MASC.
