Previously, unionized workers, represented by Les Teamsters, voted in favour of ratifying the interim agreement reached on March 28. The majority of employees on Purolator`s front are members of the Union of Teamsters, whose former collective agreement expired on December 31, 2016.

“The new agreement ensures long-term operational stability, recognizes the value our employees place on our customers, and enables Purolator to address the fundamental business realities of today`s changing market,” said John Ferguson, President and CEO of Purolator. “We look forward to continuously improving the quality service our customers rely on over the next five years and beyond. I would like to thank the teamsters and Purolator negotiating teams who have worked very hard in recent months to achieve today`s successful result. On March 29, Teamster`s local associations unanimously agreed with Purolator. The strike scheduled for 4:30 p.m. today is averted. More details will be provided during the day. As professional taxi drivers, collective bargaining has helped us understand and have a voice with both our company and the public We do our best to inform our members of all activities at each general meeting and encourage members to discuss all issues with their representatives or management. On 28 March, the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service convened a meeting with both parties to avoid a labour dispute. We are always happy to help our members and make it available to our missions!

Thanks to Teamster Local 879, my life and that of my family have changed for the better.

Purolator`s final offer was initially rejected by members on March 26. As a result of this refusal, the union sent the company a 72-hour strike notice. There is always something going on with the locals and we want to make sure that our members stay informed of what is going on!
