Hoshizaki House Dryden District Crisis Shelter will be in place to help women and children in crisis for another two years.
On Friday, roughly 20 Unifor members at the shelter voted 78 per cent in favour of ratifying a new two year contract.
"Our members were pleased to secure a solid two year contract that provides 1.75 per cent and 2 per cent general wage increases, increased employer pension contributions, improved mileage and meal allowances, expanded benefit coverage and key improvements in contract language," says National Representative for Unifor Boon added.
The new contract runs from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2022. Hoshizaki House is a Dryden-based shelter which provides a safe and supportive home environment for women and children escaping domestic violence.
"This new deal provides much needed stability for our members as they continue to focus on providing critical services to vulnerable women and children in the community during this challenging Covid-19 pandemic," Boon added.
Hoshizaki House is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week through their crisis telephone line and emergency shelter for abused women and children. The shelter offers counselling, support, programming and referrals.
