Members of YWCA Residence - Local 179, who provide both daily and long-term accommodations for those in need of safe housing and hostel living in Thompson, ratified a new three-year agreement yesterday. 

Highlights include wage increases in each year of the agreement, the introduction of a new cultural leave day, and the creation of a Labour Management Committee.

Members are encouraged to make sure the union has their most current contact information in order to receive a copy of their new collective agreement once it is available.
