Unifor Local 2002 Reaches Tentative Agreement with United Ramp Inc.

Unifor Local 2002 has announced that a tentative agreement has been reached with United Ramp Inc.

The members at United Ramp Inc. certified with Unifor in November 2021, and in June 2022 Unifor began negotiations for non-monetary proposals with the employer.

“We met again in September 2022, and we were finally able to meet and conclude the final monetary proposals this week.

“We are very happy to have reached this tentative agreement for these members in Nanaimo, BC who perform the ramp ground handling for Jazz Aviation flights departing to and from Nanaimo.

“The union will be scheduling Zoom Ratification Meetings for Tuesday, April 18th. Details of these meetings will be communicated once finalized and members will have the opportunity to listen to the details of the tentative agreement and vote on the agreement.

“We would like to thank the members who have been waiting patiently for this first agreement and what it will bring to their workplace.  For further details please contact the undersigned below.”

In Solidarity,
Theresa Amicarelli Assistant to the Local President
