Safeway (Sobeys) Bargaining

  • Sobeys talks break down, union to push for a strike mandate

    February 7, 2018

    It is with great frustration that we have to announce we've broken off talks with the company. We sat down this morning hoping to get answers and to push towards a fair contract, but the company stated loud and clear, they are only interested in gutting your collective agreement.
     
    They then resorted to the same bullying and intimidation tactics used in B.C., stating that they will be closing stores in Manitoba, but how many will depend on how much we agree to their terms.
     
    This is bargaining with a gun to your head, and bullying tactics aren't acceptable by any measure.
     
    We will schedule meetings shortly to ask you for a strike mandate.

    It is critically important that you attend. Your wages, benefits, vacations, and premiums are all at risk.
