Lawrence Meats Members Ratify New Deal

On November 8th, Local 247 members employed at the Lawrence Meats plant in Dawson Creek unanimously ratified a new four (4) year collective agreement. Bargaining had taken place during the previous two weeks and the memorandum was finalized the morning of the meeting date as small details needed to be worked out. Along with the yearly increases, members saw the introduction of a Dental Plan, a focus entering bargaining. Other improvements such as additional vacation, the availability of car plugs for members, and Dignity and Respect language highlight the deal.
