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.Ā

Taken together, the substantial real increase above inflation, a new holiday and the strengthened member protection further strengthen what was a first class contract.
