Teamsters Union Collective Agreement

The new contract will improve wage developments for all categories of workers, meaning some members will receive immediate increases of up to $2 to $3 per hour. Workers who already receive the maximum rate will receive an increase of $4.10 over the five-year agreement. Full-time workers who work (at least 90 days at work) earn twice as much time on weekends, provided they work at least five hours. UpS Store employees are not unionized and are not covered by this agreement. Teamsters represent nearly 125,000 workers across Canada. The International Brotherhood of Teamsters, which includes Teamsters Canada, has 1.4 million members in North America. Visit teamsters.ca for more information.

Unionized positions include drivers, mechanics, ramp employees, sorters, packages, car washers, customer counters, and most office workers. “I would like to thank all the members who participated in this important process. In particular, I would like to thank and congratulate all the members of the negotiating committee for the long hours they have devoted to these negotiations which have taken place under unusual and difficult circumstances,” added Mr. Laporte.
