Contract update for Sodexho workers

Sodexho workers will see their new wage rates reflected on their January 6 pay cheques.

The January 6 cheque will include retroactive payments for both the December 17, 2005 and May 1, 2005 wage adjustments.

The May 1 retro pay will be accompanied with two separate tax statements.

Workers at Rosewood Manor, Foyer Maillard, MSA, Eagleridge and Central Care will get their signing bonuses in their January 6 pay cheques.

The retroactive payments due for the period between October 1, 2005 and and December 16, 2005 will be paid in members’ January 20 pay cheque — with two tax statements.

Many other provisions of the new contract came into effect on December 20 and the union will circulate a bulletin early in the New Year to inform members of how these changes will be implemented.
