Chartwell Meadowbrook Retirement Residence ratifies new three year deal
The members at Chartwell CSH Meadowbrook Retirement Residences in Lively ratified a new collective agreement on March 25, 2021. Workers across all rates and classifications will receive annual wage increases of 2%. At the date of ratification cooks will receive an extra 1% and part-time members will receive an extra $.15 per hour. The night shift premium will also increase. RRSP matching by the employer will increase to 2% up from 1%.
