Retro Pay and Wage Increases for Kalawsky Chevrolet Buick GMC Members

Kalawsky Chevrolet Buick GMC workers in Castlegar, British Columbia, bargained hard for their new collective agreement.

With over 90% of members voting in favour of ratifying the tentative agreement, members won major improvements. These include:

  • Retroactive pay back to January 1, 2021, of up to $0.50 per hour
  • Wage increases backdated to August 1, 2021, for everyone at the dealership,
  • Body shop technicians will experience wage increases backdated to April 22, 2021, with wage increases in each year of the collective agreement that will expire on July 31, 2024, and
  • Wage increases range between 2.3% and 8.6% depending on the workers’ classification or occupation at the dealership.

UFCW 1518 is now finalizing a copy of the new agreement, which will be provided to Kalawsky Chevrolet Buick GMC members when it is complete.
