Members of Unifor have occupied the Northstar Aerospace plant in Milton, Ontario. The plant was purchased by Heligear Acquisition Co. in 2012. Heligear intends to move the plant to Chicago, cutting jobs and leaving the workers’ pension with a massive deficit. Unifor members at Northstar have been told their pension will be reduced by 25%. After months of negotiations, Unifor has been forced to take drastic action.
Members of the Bee Clean bargaining unit have voted 78% in favour of their new collective agreement.

REVISED - Dear Sisters and Brothers:
The new drive time values for your route that were negotiated into the current collective agreement will be paid on your July 27, 2017 pay.
These new values are retroactive to January 1st, 2017.
