Outreach workers at Thompson Homeless Shelter build a better life – UFCW 832

Thompson, Man. – December 17, 2019 – Outreach workers at the Thompson Homeless Shelter have achieved a new union contract that provides a better life for members and their families.

Under the new collective agreement, members will enjoy higher wages, paid training opportunities, and four new float days. The new contract also improves language from the previous agreement.

“We’re proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish for a group of extremely hard-working members,” says Union Negotiator Phil Kraychuk. “Now we hope they get to enjoy this Christmas, knowing that the wage increase they earned will make life easier for their families,” he adds.

The Thompson Homeless Shelter provides a safe place for up to 24 clients per night through the Canadian Mental Health Association. The union represents outreach workers at the shelter. To read more about the new contract at Thompson, click here.
