Office staff employed by Local 793 of the International Union of Operating Engineers have voted in favour of a new contract.

The 37 workers, represented by Local 343 of the Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union (COPE), recently ratified a new three-year contract. They’re employed at Local 793’s head office in Oakville, a training centre in Morrisburg and 12 offices across the province.

Local 793 business manager Mike Gallagher said he was pleased that office staff had accepted the offer.

“This was a fair settlement,” he said. “The contract gives our office staff a wage increase that is well above industry standards and also improves both their pension and health and benefit plans.”

The package is retroactive to Jan. 1, 2007 and includes an industry-leading wage increase of eight per cent over three years.

Local 793 is a provincial building trade union and represents more than 10,000 construction and industrial workers throughout Ontario.
