Tentative agreement reached with Loblaw

September 28, 2018

 

The bargaining committee representing over 3500 workers at Superstore, Extra Foods, and No Frills stores across Manitoba reached a tentative agreement at 3:30 a.m. on Friday, September 28, 2018, with Loblaw.

“Thanks to our members’ strong strike mandate and some long days of bargaining, we were finally able to get a deal we can recommend to our membership,” said Jeff Traeger, President of UFCW Local 832. “I cannot thank this bargaining committee enough for all the hard work they put in. We wouldn’t have achieved this without their effort.”

Details of the tentative agreement will be presented to the members at meetings across the province, on Sunday, October 14, 2018, where the bargaining committee will be unanimously recommending that the membership accept the tentative agreement reached with the company.

The contract expired last night, Thursday, September 27, 2018, at midnight, but it will continue in force and effect until the ratification vote.
