It has come to the union's attention that on today's pay statements, our members have received retroactive pay back to February 1, 2016. This amount was what the employer had committed to paying their non-unionized employees in the communication that they issued on April 25, 2016.
This is not what Unifor negotiated with this employer, and as we are still in the ratification period the union has advised the employer to not deduct this retroactive pay from all Unifor Local 2002 members at this time.
Many of you have attended ratification meetings with Unifor over the past two weeks and have received details of the tentative agreement which is contrary to this payout. If this tentative agreement is ratified by our members, any additional monies owing will be paid out within 30 days following ratification.
Please kindly advise one of your Unifor bargaining committee representatives of any further ?issues that may occur as soon as possible.
