Safeway Workers Bag New Contract

March 16, 2009 6:25 AM | News


Workers at Safeway stores across Manitoba chose ingredients for a new contract late Sunday that saw 83% support.

1,135 workers voted on a five-year deal, out of the 3,300 eligible to have had a say.

Last week it looked as though workers of UFCW Local 832 would be hitting the picket line as negotiations came to a halt. In February, 97% of workers voted to strike.

But customers will see business as usual today when they walk into their local Safeway. The ratified contract includes a favourable wage increase and a boost in benefits.
