Minister Raitt commends Loomis Express and CAW Canada on renewing three collective agreements

OTTAWA, June 26, 2013 /CNW/ - Today, the Honourable Lisa Raitt, Canada's Labour Minister, congratulated Loomis Express (Canada) Ltd. and the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW Canada) on renewing three collective agreements.

"I am pleased to learn that the parties successfully resolved their disputes, providing them with a stable and productive work environment," said Minister Raitt. "Cooperative labour-management relations benefit the economic prosperity and security of Canadians."

The CAW Canada's bargaining units represent approximately 650 Loomis Express employees, such as owner-operators and warehouse workers, located across Ontario and Nova Scotia. The previous collective agreements expired on March 31, 2013.

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.
