Nestlé Confectionery Labour Disruption

TORONTO, May 1, 2017 /CNW/ - Following extensive contract discussions in recent weeks, effective May 1, 2017, Unifor, the union representing ­­­­­­­­­­­production and maintenance employees at our confectionery factory in Toronto (Sterling Road), has elected to take a strike position. The parties are scheduled to resume discussions Tuesday May 2nd.

The company does not engage temporary agency workers. Temporary employees are part of the bargaining unit and are engaged to supplement the seasonal nature of the confectionery business.

Nestlé Canada's priority is to work with the union to achieve a collective agreement that ensures that operations at our Toronto plant remain competitive in an increasingly challenging marketplace.

Nestlé Canada's goal is to have employees back at work.
