IUOE Local 793 ratify new three-year deal
A large portion of members from Local 793 of the International Union of Operating Engineers voted to ratify a new three-year Provincial Collective Agreement with contractors during a meeting on Jan. 28.
The new deal will provide members with a $3.95 an hour pay increase over the next three years.
The first $1.45 an hour hike will take effect on May 1, followed by a $1.30 an hour increase the following year, ending with a $1.20 an hour jump in 2015.
Also, the new agreement hopes to encourage job opportunities for mobile crane apprentices and increase the ratio of apprentices to journeypersons.
Work expenses and allowance will also receive a three per cent bump each year until May 1, 2015.
The agreement, which will last until April 30, 2016, affects operators who work on cranes and heavy equipment at construction sites across Ontario.
“Both sides worked hard to reach the settlement because there are many important infrastructure, energy sector and institutional projects throughout the province that need to be brought to completion to deliver the services that the public need,” said Local 793 Business Manager Mike Gallagher in a press statement.
