TORONTO — The Bay is pleased to announce that today, the agreement reached with the union representing the associates at its Scarborough Distribution Centre was ratified. The agreement, which is in line with current increases in the sector, benefits The Bay by providing further cost certainty over the next three years.

“We are pleased with the outcome, which benefits The Bay and provides our associates with a fair, reasonable and meaningful wage increase,” said Iain Nairn, President and CEO of The Bay. “It is unfortunate that we ended up in unnecessary strike action , which did not lead to any further financial benefit for associates. Ultimately, we are happy we were able to come to a swift resolution and we are looking forward to our associates returning to their paid employment quickly.”
