Brampton, ON – Members at Peel Cheshire Home in Brampton have ratified a new agreement. This one-year deal will avoid arbitration and prevent further delays in wage improvements for healthcare workers who provide essential care to vulnerable members of the community.
The agreement comes with a retroactive payment of 4%, a 3% increase in wages going forward, and a 1.5% pension contribution. The group is optimistic that with new management, they can negotiate a renewal without involving a third party.
