Fruit Industry Members Ratify New Deal

Local 247 members ratified a one year collective agreement with the Okanagan Tree Fruit Company. The Agreement calls for a 2% increase with no other changes to the agreement. When the bargaining commenced earlier this year, it became apparent that due to changes ongoing within the industry, it would be difficult to deal with many of the issues. The Company raised the idea of a short term deal to get them through the completion of the amalgamations, etc, and then the parties could once again return to the bargaining table.
