Tentative Agreement reached with Maple Leaf Brandon

November 20, 2019

Watch President Traeger's Video update, or read the transcript below.

Hi, I'm Jeff Traeger, president of UFCW Local 832, and I'm here to give you an update on negotiations in Brandon.

As many of you are aware, we've been bargaining with the employer since June of this year. So it's been a really long, long sled. And as of Tuesday, we've reached a tentative agreement with your employer. We're very, very happy with the deal we've managed to put together. We had a marathon session on Monday night almost going around the clock, and we reached a tentative agreement with the employer on Tuesday

Your bargaining committee did a fantastic job of representing the interests of Maple Leaf workers at the Bargaining Table. They all should be congratulated, and if you get a chance to see one of them, please let them know how much their hard work is appreciated.

We will be conducting a vote on the agreement and a meeting the day before.  We have booked the Manitoba Room of the Keystone Centre on Sunday, December 1st at 2 pm.  We invite all of our members to come to a single meeting. The committee believes this is the best way for everybody to hear the information at the same time.

Following that on Monday, December 2nd, we will be conducting an all-day vote in the plant as we did the last two times of contract ratification.  It will be upstairs on the second floor in the Training Room. 

Please make every effort to come out to the meeting on December 1st and please make every effort to vote on December 2nd.

Thank you


Jeff Traeger, President 
UFCW Local 832
