OTTAWA, June 28, 2013 /CNW/ - Today, the Honourable Lisa Raitt, the
Government of Canada's Labour Minister, commended Loomis Express
(Canada) Ltd. and the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW Canada) on renewing
their collective agreements.
"I am pleased that the parties worked closely together to reach
agreements," said Minister Raitt. "Cooperative labour-management
relations support the economic prosperity of Canadians."
The CAW Canada's bargaining units represent approximately 150 Loomis
Express employees, including owner-operators, drivers, warehouse
workers and clerical employees, located across Manitoba and
Saskatchewan, whose previous collective agreements expired on
March 31, 2013. Earlier this week, collective agreements were also
reached with Loomis employees in Ontario and Nova Scotia.
These agreements were reached with assistance from the Labour Program's
Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS). The FMCS provides
dispute resolution and prevention assistance to trade unions and
employers under the jurisdiction of the Canada Labour Code.
