(Montreal) Around a hundred workers at Airbus Atlantique Canada’s Mirabel factory will receive a new four-year employment contract.
The 111 members who gathered in Blainville on Friday afternoon voted 67.4% in favor of their employer’s new offer.
This was announced by their union Local 712 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW).
On November 12, the hundred workers who make the center section of Bombardier’s Global aircraft rejected the employer’s first offer by a majority of over 98%.
“This second employment contract for the Airbus Atlantic unit creates fair working conditions,” Local 712 President Christian Bertrand said in a statement.
The union notes that the new collective agreement will provide benefits equivalent to a 23% increase in contract value over four years, including 11.2% from the first year.
The benefits achieved include an increase in the employer’s share of group insurance and an increase in the number of paid vacation days. The union organization also mentions the addition of a clause restricting subcontracting, better access to overtime and the change in the salary scale.
The first collective agreement for these employees was signed in April 2021. It expired on September 30th.
