Unifor Local 112 members of the Hilton Garden Inn Toronto-Mississauga ratified their first collective agreement after weeks of intensive work We filed a complaint about this on October 31, directly at the third stage of the claim process, which concludes that “the company mistakenly interpreted the collective agreement on EDO law/compensation for workers eligible for return work after strike/lock-out.” The comparison sought is “a full remedy, as is appropriated by an arbitrator for each member who has violated his or her collective rights.” “This was a historic and complex round of negotiations, and the negotiating committees will recommend that members ratify today`s interim agreement,” said Scott Doherty, executive assistant to the National President.
