Sodexo Physical Plant workers at Acadia University ratified their first collective agreement after just two days of bargaining. Local 2107 members voted 91 per cent in favour of the contract that secured wages, shift premiums, Paid Education Leave, a Women’s Advocate, and enhanced safety language.
“We had an incredibly committed and focused team during bargaining and the results are a clear reflection of that,” said Darlene McIvor, National Representative. “These workers were eager to be Unifor members and were ready to work together to improve their working conditions.”
The vote on April 10 also included a vote for three shop stewards (pictured) and a Unit Chairperson.
The collective agreement covers workers who perform custodial and snow removal duties at the university.
