ALMA | the employees of the factory Alma de Rio Tinto Alcan have agreed with a large majority for a new labour contract with a duration of four years, on Thursday.
The contract was ratified with a majority of 96 % for the accreditation schedule, 89 % for office workers and unanimity among police officers-fire fighters.
“This is the result of the development of relations since 2012. A more constructive relationship established with the time and this sentiment is confirmed in this latest round of trading. It is the result of constructive negotiations,” said Sylvain Maltais, who represents union members of the three accreditations from the factory, on Friday, in a statement released by the Syndiat Steelworkers.

The abandonment of the project has forced the holding of new negotiations, which took place over several months. The expiry of the collective agreement was expected in December.
The wages and the pension plan were not the subject of negotiation since they are framed by the process of adjustment is continuous.
