Pacific Chevrolet (formerly Dennis Jonsson Motor Products) in Port Alberni has a signed agreement. A three year deal, there are yearly increase of 1%, 1% and 1.5%. With inflation currently around ½%, this represents a real increase in income. The Members are splitting the increase between wages and pension. They are in the IAM national pension plan.

Trade school pay was brought in line with the Supplementary Unemployment Benefits programme, allowing the topping up of wages to 95% without any EI clawback.

Family Day was added to statutory holidays bring the total to 11.

A few language adjustment round out this package. For Port Alberni, where the Pulp Mill workers agreed to a 10% rollback and the local economy is devastated, this is a solid agreement.
