Winnipeg – January 6, 2018 – UFCW Local 832 members working at Securitas have voted unanimously in favour of a new three-year collective agreement. The Securitas members provide contract security services to a wide variety of businesses across Manitoba.
During the life of the agreement, the members will receive a six percent wage increase, with raises of two percent in each year of the contract. The contract also contains increases to premiums for vehicle use, strike services, protection services, and meal and boot allowances. As well, guards are now eligible for the boot allowance every twelve months, as opposed to every eighteen months.
Other gains for members include:
• Yearly lump sum payments for guards with more than ten years of service;
• The employer will now pay for the cost of client-mandated training;
• An increase to sick time; and
• A new complete benefit package at a very low premium rate, which will be paid at a 50/50 ratio (employer/employee).
