Toronto Food Service Workers Celebrate Contract Wins
September 17, 2012
UNITE HERE Local 75 members working at five Aramark food service locations have voted overwhelmingly to ratify new union contracts. UNITE HERE members working at the University of Toronto, York University, Upper Canada College, and Toronto French School are celebrating significant wage and pension increases and improvements in benefits, including expanded health benefits for part-time workers.
These agreements have set a new union standard for our food service members in the Greater Toronto area. They come after more than a year of bargaining, mobilization in the streets, and strong strike authorization votes and rejection votes of previous company offers by the membership across the city this past spring.
