Wages will reportedly increase between 22 per cent and 32 per cent over the course of the three-year agreement (as much as $4.19 per hour to $6.81 per hour, depending on classification). The annual vision care benefit will increase to $350 and Local 3000 members now qualify for up to $3,000 in orthodontics care. Housekeepers will see their daily room limit decrease.

The collective agreement now recognizes the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Boxing Day as paid holidays.

Unifor Local 3000 represents more than 140 union members at the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel, working in the restaurant, kitchen, front desk, maintenance, banquets and housekeeping.

The Coast Coal Harbour is owned by APA Hotels and Resorts.
