Loblaw contract talks continue; no strike date set
UFCW Canada local unions 1977, 1000A and 175 & 633 say that none of the major issues on the table have yet been settled but that, “as long as there is forward momentum towards a settlement, we will continue to negotiate.”
Although the union was given a 97 per cent strike mandate by its membership in early July, no strike date has yet been set.
Talks are scheduled to reconvene on August 24, 2010.
The store banners affected by these negotiations include Loblaws, Zehrs, Real Canadian Superstores, Great Food and Fortinos, all subsidiaries of Weston-controlled Loblaw Companies Limited, Canada’s largest retailer.
