IAM Local Lodge 717T members employed by Magellan Aerospace ratified a new three year agreement over the weekend.

“The bargaining committee understood the priorities of our members, they worked together and worked hard,” said IAM District Lodge 78 Directing Business Representative Kim Valliere.

“While negotiating via unfamiliar platforms (Zoom), their efforts made it possible to achieve increases to wages each year of the agreement, improvements to health benefits, weekly indemnity top ups, and safety footwear allowances, which were all priorities for the bargaining unit.”
