Local 4005 members at Scanwood ratify new collective agreement

We are pleased to report that CAW Local 4005 members at Scanwood Canada Ltd. have ratified a new 3 year collective agreement
by over 76 % at a well attended meeting in Burnside Industrial Park, NS.

The Unions efforts made considerable changes to the language of the agreement, which also provided for a signing bonus, wage
and benefit increases.

Special thanks to the CAW Scanwood Bargaining Committee: Gary Berrigan, Brendan Sullivan, Paul McLean, Frank O'Brien, CAW
Council 4000 Regional Representative Lou Walsh and National Representative Rick Garant for a great job in tough times.

Council 4000 wishes to acknowledge the incredible accomplishments were only possible due in part to the leadership of National
Rep Rick Garant.  We also wish to thank Maureen and Yvette of the Halifax Regional Office.
