Union Members at Brown Bros. Ford in Vancouver BC have a new three year agreement. The agreement includes a 2% increase in each year. When compared to a Consumer Price Index for Vancouver in November 2012 of 0.2%, this is a substantial increase.
The right of our Members to have a Shop Steward present at any meeting which may lead to discipline further strengthens their rights and protections under the Collective Agreement.
Members will now enjoy an 11th statutory holiday on Family Day in February.
Taken together, the substantial real increase above inflation, a new holiday and the strengthened member protection further strengthen what was a first class contract.
