Wolfville, NS – Maintenance employees at Acadia University have a new collective agreement with Sodexo Canada. The workers, members of CUPE local 4198, ratified the agreement on August 5, 2010.

The three-year contract includes across the board hourly wage increases of $0.40 in the first year, $0.75 in the second and $1 in the third. It also includes increases of $0.50 per hour for forepersons and an increase of $0.25 per hour in the second year for utility workers.

The deal also provides for additions to call-in pay, as well as increases in vacation, bereavement and sick leave accumulation.
