Hundreds of unionized workers at SaskTel have voted in favour of a new three-year contract with their employer.
Members of three Unifor locals ratified the deal in voting that ended Wednesday.
SaskTel says in a release that the package, which covers more than 3,000 workers in a variety of departments, calls for hourly pay to increase by 1.75 per cent retroactive to March 13, 2016.
Another increase of 1.65 per cent will kick in next March, with a 1.2-per-cent hike to follow in the final year of the agreement.
Unifor says in a statement that there are also pension plan improvements, along with stronger language covering job security and conflict and grievance resolution.
The union’s bargaining committee had recommended members support the deal.
