Usw Local 6500 Collective Agreement
The same team negotiated the 1991 collective agreement, which included 22% wage increases, better vacation departures, higher wages, a protected COLA formula and improved benefits. During the strikes, it was an excellent example of solidarity and wonderful support from the community, other unions and trade unionists across Canada. The new agreement included an improvement in the “35 and out” system, new COLA-roll-ins, 51% lump sum, additional unemployment benefits, a cooperative wage study, at a total cost of USD 4.07 per hour, which were negotiated at best. President Dave Patterson became Director of District 6. 6500 local officers and members served on the Cambrian College Board of Directors, boards of directors, boards of directors, city and space councils, and Greater Sudbury Council. The Local donated for a variety of purposes, including the Cancer Treatment Centre, the Memorial Hospital extension, an Pulmonary Function Laboratory in 1974, Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Scan, and food banks and various charities; Last time, $100,000 at McCullough House Hospice.

The new treaty was ratified by 76.7% of SOS`s 6,500 members in Sudbury and 87% of THE 6,200 SOS Local members in Port Colborne. The ratification rate was high: 89% of the 6500 local members voted and 91% of the 6200 local members voted. The support was far from unanimous, but United Steelworkers Local 6500 says he is pleased that members voted in favour of a new one-year collective agreement with Vale in Sudbury. “Due to the persistence of the COVID-19 crisis, Vale and Local 6500 have agreed to a one-year extension, which focuses on the health and safety of members and their families in these exceptional circumstances,” the statement said. The new contract provides for a significant increase in contributions to workers` pension plans. At the end of the collective agreement, the basic pension for a 30-year-old worker is $3,750 per month. 1982 was a terrible year in the nickel industry and 6500 for Local members. 1053 members were laid off when nickel sales were down.
Although there have been no changes to wages and the COLA formula, improvements have been made to pensions and other benefits. The co-op wage development curriculum was implemented on June 1, 1983.
