Pro Mac Manufacturing in Duncan, BC, is the largest independent Machine Shop / Fabrication Shop on Vancouver Island. Our Members undertake everything from precision machining, gear cutting and major fabrication to field repairs. The Company has a large variety of equipment including bevel gear cutters, CNC machining centres, 5 axis CNC turning centres, large boring mills and a custom built heat treating machine.
Traditional among the highest paid on the Vancouver Island, our Members have ratified a new Collective Agreement which maintains that distinction.
Wages will increase by 3%, 2.5% and 2% over the next three years plus an additional $108 will deposited into every Members Retirement Saving every month and up to $140 will be added to pay cheques each month as a bonus. Considering the low inflation climate of the economy, these are significant increases.
An increase of overtime meal allowances to $20, a subsidy of custom ear plugs and clarification of the conditions of employment for Part Time employment of retired Members round out this agreement.
Given the solid increases in compensation contained within the new Collective Agreement, it is no surprise the deal was accepted by an 83% margin.
