The agreement includes wage increases of three per cent in each year. In addition the new agreement also provides new job security language and benefit improvements.
"To conclude a collective agreement without any government intervention in the federal sector is an in incredible accomplishment," said CAW National Representative Joel Fournier. "The bargaining committee put a lot effort into concluding this agreement and it has paid off for the membership," he said.
