Unifor Local 2027, which represents its 153 production and skilled trades workers at Hiram Walker & Sons Limited, has ratified a four-year contract.

The new agreement was reached six months before the current agreement was due to expire. Approximately 86% of the union membership voted in favour of the new deal.

“We are very pleased to have come to a new four-year collective agreement with Unifor. This provides a strong and positive foundation for continued growth at Hiram Walker & Sons,” says Angelo DeMarco, Senior Director of Human Resources, North American Operations.

The deal includes lump Sum payments totalling $5,000 over the life of the agreement, an early signing bonus of $4,000, vacation schedule improvements, introduction of a temporary part-time student program and 18 voluntary retirement incentive packages over the life of the contract.

“We are very pleased with the outcome and proud to have bargained a fair agreement with the Company that provides improvements for our members and contributes to long-term growth and stability. I would like to thank Local 2027 membership for their support,” said James Mitchell, President Unifor Local 2027.
