Retail members at Indigo Square One achieve first contract – UFCW 1006A

Retail-Bookstore-Workers-First-Contract-300-EN.jpgMississauga, Ont. – June 23, 2021 – UFCW Canada Local 1006A members working at the Chapters-Indigo bookstore at the Square One shopping centre in Mississauga, Ontario have ratified their first collective agreement.

The members at the store voted to join the union last fall. Their first contract provides a number of important gains including annual raises, additional statutory holidays, increased paid sick days and more.

"With the contract, we gained a significant amount that we didn’t have before,” said Zaarin Bushra, a bargaining committee member. "I am happy with it and it’s a good step forward. It’s always hard to negotiate a first contract."

“We are proud to be the voice and home for Indigo workers seeking fairness, respect and dignity at work,” said UFCW Canada Local 1006A President Wayne Hanley. “With this first contract, our members at Indigo Square One have achieved a strong foundation to build on for the future."
