Marine Drive Golf Club Workers Make Impressive Gains

Workers at Marine Drive Golf in Vancouver recently ratified a new collective bargaining agreement with some impressive gains.

“The part time/seasonal workers were in need of a serious rise in wages with rental and cost of living rates out of control,” said Neil McNab, a groundskeeper, and a member of SEIU Local 2’s bargaining committee. He has been Marine Drive since 1991.

First year groundskeepers are receiving an immediate wage increase of either 8.8%, 7.8% or 6.7% depending on how many days they have worked. They will see a 4% increase in year two of the collective agreement and another 4% in year three.

Golf Course Workers United

Golf Course Workers United is a campaign that brings together workers to overcome the challenges we face in the golf course sector. Wages have not kept up with the sharp rising cost of living across Canada. Together, workers can improve working conditions by connecting with one another and forming a union. SEIU Local 2 represents hundreds of golf course workers in over a dozen courses in BC.
