Amidst the widespread economic pain and disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic some employers have gone out of their way to acknowledge their employees’ commitment and dedication with more than just words. GSU members work for two such employers.
Grain Millers Canada Corp. owns and operates the oat milling and processing plant in Yorkton, SK where GSU Local 4 members work. Recently, Grain Millers showed its appreciation of employees’ efforts by awarding employees who have over 90 days’ service with the company a $1,000 bonus and employees with less than 90 days’ service a $500 bonus.
Trouw Nutrition owns and operates a feed mill operation in Chilliwack, BC where GSU Local 9 members work. Recently, Trouw showed its appreciation of employees’ efforts by awarding employees with a $1 per hour increase in pay.
“‘When you see something, say something’ should apply to good things too,” said GSU general secretary Hugh Wagner. “Hats off to Grain Millers and Trouw.”
