SaskTel announced today that Unifor has voted to ratify a new collective agreement. On 31 October, we filed a complaint on this matter, directly at the third stage of the appeal procedure, in which it is found that “the company has mistakenly interpreted the collective agreement on the right of EDO/the remuneration of workers eligible to return to the company after strike/lock-out. The comparison sought is “a full remedy, as is appropriated by an arbitrator for each member who has violated his or her collective rights.” Unifor completed the vote on May 18, 2016. The current collective agreement expired on March 12, 2016. The new agreement is valid for a three-year term, which expires on March 16, 2019. Among the strengths of the new agreement are: pension contributions made available to workers have also been increased.

As of March 13, 2016, SaskTel will pay 7.45 per cent of the plan`s salaries and employees will pay 4.45 per cent of their wages. (SaskTel did not provide information on current contribution rates).
