Atu 107 Collective Agreement

In November, drivers, mechanics and HSR administration employees voted overwhelmingly in favour of rejecting a contract offer from the previous city, in the absence of disagreement over drivers` salaries, benefits and access to toilets along many bus lines. In a statement, ATU Local 107 President Eric Tuck said that members have officially approved a four-year collective agreement with 83 percent for it. The union representing 800 Hamilton roadside workers, ATU Local 107, announced on Friday that it had voted to ratify a new collective agreement. Members of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 107 overwhelmingly supported and voted in favour of a new contract between the union and the City of Hamilton. The new agreement was presented to union members on Monday and the vote took place today. The union, which represents 800 bus drivers and mechanics of the Hamilton Street Railway (HSR), says its members voted to ratify a new collective agreement on Friday night. “I am proud to announce that the union has officially approved a four-year collective agreement with an 83 percent democratic vote for adoption,” said Eric Tuck, president of ATU Local 107, in a press release posted on Twitter, December 27. The city and the union had already announced an interim agreement on December 18, but had not released details of the agreement.
