Employees at Scapa Tapes North America in Renfrew have a new contract. The 137 members of local 6946 of the United Steelworkers union have ratified a new three year collective agreement with the company. The production and maintenance workers will see two percent annual wage increases, higher shift premiums, the introduction of an apprenticeship program for millwrights and several improvements to benefits and contract language that strengthen working conditions. The Scapa plant produces adhesive tapes for medical, athletic, consumer and industrial applications. USW Ontario and Atlantic Director Marty Warren calls it a fair collective agreement that improves working conditions.   He goes on to say that "it shows that with the right combination of investment and a skilled workforce, Canadian manufacturing is competitive and can provide good jobs for union members in our communities."
