UFCW-Loblaw store contract talks resume under Ontario provincial mediation
following massive strike vote

TORONTO, July 19 /CNW/ - Negotiations between three UFCW Canada local unions and Loblaw Companies Ltd. resumed today in Niagara Falls with the assistance of an Ontario Ministry of Labour Mediation Officer.

The negotiations are for renewal collective agreements covering about 30,000 front line workers at Loblaws, Zehrs, Real Canadian Superstores, Great Food and Fortinos stores throughout Ontario who are members of UFCW Canada Locals 1000A, 1977, and 175 & 633.

Talks are scheduled to continue until this Friday, July 23.

After a rocky start to negotiations that led to a 97 per cent-plus strike vote by union members earlier this month, both parties have now agreed that all issues are on the table for discussion.

The union has declared that it will remain at the bargaining table as long as talks are progressing.
