Unite Union members at Heartland Hotel are celebrating after ratifying their first ever Collective Agreement.

Unite Union has been slowly building membership at this hotel since late 2011 when it was under the Management of the Bella Vista Hotel group.

An increase in membership during 2013 coincided nicely with a re-branding and a change in management with the hotel joining the Scenic Circle Hotel Group.

Negotiations were initiated in November 2013, and the members ratified an offer from the company on 13 May.

Needless to say, after many years with no pay rise other than the minimum wage increase the Unite Union members at Heartland Hotel are now thrilled to have their years of service and loyalty recognised, with the Collective Agreement also providing for a further pay increase later in the year.
