Toronto, Nov. 14, 2011 – We are pleased to announce that Purolator has reached an early tentative agreement with the Teamsters representing close to 10,000 of our teammates across Canada. The tentative agreement received unanimous recommendation by the negotiating committee at the conclusion of contract talks on November 11.
It is expected the agreement will be communicated to its members, our unionized teammates, over the next several weeks. The tentative agreement is subject to a ratification vote by Purolator’s unionized teammates once communication of the agreement has been completed.
“We are very pleased with the progress of contract negotiations and are looking forward to the ratification of an agreement between Purolator and our unionized teammates”, stated Tom Schmitt, Purolator’s President and CEO.
