CANADA: Men's Wear Maker's Staff To Return To Work
Seventy per cent of staff at Jack Victor Ltd, a Montreal men's clothing manufacturer, have voted to accept an agreement hammered out between union representatives and management.
Employees will return to work in anticipation of a new four-year contract based on terms and conditions hammered out between the parties.
"We are very pleased that we were able to come to an agreement quickly. The clothing industry is a very competitive sector and we have customers around the world. This agreement does more than serve the interests of the company and its employees: it is also good for the Canadian clothing industry," said company spokesperson Patrick L Benaroche.
The agreement arrived at between Jack Victor Ltd and its employees comes on the heels of one signed recently in Sainte-Therese by 300 employees of clothing manufacturer Les Vetements S& F Canada Ltd.
Jack Victor opened its first clothing store in La Tuque, Quebec in 1913. Today, the company, named after its founder, has showrooms and offices in New York, and exports worldwide. The company earned the prestigious Griffe d'Or award for best Canadian men's clothing manufacturer in 1993.
