IAM Local Lodge 907 Members Ratify First Collective Agreement

IAM Local Lodge 907, whose members work for the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada (PIPSC), have ratified their first Collective Agreement with the IAM.

Highlights include:

  • annual wage increases;
  • pension improvements;
  • plus several other monetary and language improvements.

“The members at PIPSC stood united throughout the process and were prepared to take the necessary steps, including a strike, if needed, to secure an agreement that respected their dedication and hard work,” said IAM Representative Ralph Martin.

“The leadership of the committee (Matthew Way, Marie-Helene Tougas, and Heather Kohli) did an excellent job in maintaining their focus and keeping the membership from wavering in this very difficult set of negotiations.”
