Members vote to accept final offer from Dauphin Co-op

August 27, 2019

The bargaining committee had recommended that the membership say no to this offer, but on Sunday, August 25, 2019, members in Dauphin voted yes to accept the Co-operatives Final Offer.

The Union has filed an Unfair Labour Practise against the employer for interference, through inappropriate communications.

"Last time they gave over 2% each year and have since built a new store that is doing very well," said Sonia Taylor, Negotiator. "While the cost of living is going up more and more, the Co-op wants to put less and less in their employee's pockets."

July 10, 2019

After two separate meetings on Sunday, July 7, workers at Dauphin Co-op turned down the Co-op’s latest offer by 92% and voted 75% in favour of giving their bargaining committee a strike mandate.
“This 75% result puts the bargaining committee in a good position when we meet again at the bargaining table,” said Sonia Taylor, union negotiator. “We hope that after seeing how strongly opposed the employees are, we can get a fair deal that works for everyone, not just the management.”
