Finning strike is over

STRIKING Finning workers in Terrace and elsewhere are headed back to work this week after agreeing to a new contract.

Members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers have been off work for more than a month in pressing for wage increases.

Finning announced late last week that a deal had been reached.

The four-year contract provides for annual wage increases of four per cent in the first and fourth year, and three per cent in years two and three.

Workers first struck June 22, hampering operations at the heavy duty equipment's Western Canadian operations.
