Aramark members at Scarborough General ratify new deal
On April 18, 2023 UFCW Locals 175 & 633 members at Aramark in the Scarborough General Hospital Cafeteria unanimously ratified a three-year deal.
The committee worked diligently to ensure representation was given to both new and seasoned members. They improved language for probationary employees in regards to holiday pay and ensured the agreement was inclusive through gender neutral language throughout.
Highlights include various monetary gains including:
- The introduction of new sick days – two (2) for Full-time and one (1) for Part-time;
- An increase to the shoe allowance for eligible employees;
- An increase in bereavement days to five for immediate family members, up from four, and;
- An increase to the Training & Education fund.
Additionally, members will see a change to the wage grid which will recognize the government increase to minimum wage and will bring members up to a top rate of over $18 by the end of the term.
