The union representing Sobeys warehouse workers in Ontario says it has ratified a four-year contract that includes large wage increases, improved pensions and wage parity for part-time workers.

Unifor says the agreement, which expires February 28, 2026, covers more than 500 workers at the distribution centre in Whitby, Ont. and includes a full-time pay increase of 19.5 per cent over four years, including $2.74 per hour or 11.3 per cent immediately, for employees with 8,000 or more hours of service. Part-time wages increase $7 to $14 per hour over four years and employees with less than 2,000 hours will see an immediate $7 per hour increase and earn the same hourly rate as full-time counterparts.

Signing bonuses of $1,000 to $2,000 will be paid to those with 2,000 or more hours of service.

Sobeys Inc. will double its RRSP contribution to five per cent over four years and add a sixth week of vacation at 26 years of seniority.
