CUPE 3812 members who work for Sc0075r, an armoured vehicle company in Quebec, have voted 81 per cent in favour of accepting a September 30th mediator’s report. The deal puts an end to the more than three-month long strike by the local’s 900 members.

“We are satisfied with the settlement we obtained and our members have let us know we did a good job,” says Jocelyn Tremblay, the local’s President. “We made considerable gains which will significantly improve our working conditions. When we consider that just over a year ago, employees were still split between several union certifications, we can see how much ground has been gained in a very short time.”

The settlement for the CUPE 3812 members, who work transporting valuables and delivering cash to automated bank machines, provides for:
  • A signing bonus equal to an average of 3% of wages for the last five years;
  • A significant decrease in wage disparity;
  • During the agreement, a single wage of $19 an hour for employees on the road;
  • Substantial wage increases (close to 25%) for employees in the counting rooms;
  • General harmonization of working conditions;
  • Reduced job insecurity due to an increase in the number of full-time employees;
  • Guaranteed minimum hours of employment;
  • Many improvements in the organization of work; and
  • Improvement of the group RRSP for part-time members.
