Province Reaches Tentative Agreement with Ferry Captains #nltraffic
The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador has reached a tentative agreement with the Canadian Merchant Service Guild.
This agreement is subject to ratification by the province’s ferry captains. The agreement covers the period of 2012 to 2020.
Given the Ferry Captains have been without an agreement since 2012, the tentative agreement attempts to bring Captains’ benefits and wages in line with other public sector workers in the province. The Canadian Merchant Service Guild will be presenting the tentative agreement to its membership in the coming weeks.
Specific details on the changes to the current agreement will be released subject to successful ratification.
