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."

The new four-year...

Election results are in

August 22, 2019

At 4:32 today, we received the results from the commissioner, and we regret to inform you that UFCW 832 was not successful in retaining any of our members in health care. 

We are sad, of course, to lose our health care members through this ridiculous process. UFCW has stood up for our members at St. Boniface, Grace Hospital, WRHA Laundry, and across the Northern Regional Health Authority for a very long time. Supporting health care will always be an important part of who we are as a union.

Ukrainian Farmers Co-op Negotiations Underway

July 11, 2019

The union and the company met on July 9 and 10 to begin negotiations towards renewing the collective agreement for the members working at the Ukrainian Farmers Co-op. 

The parties did reach deals on some minor non-monetary items and had good discussion on several areas. However, unfortunately, the Co-op has proposed several concessions that would weaken the collective agreement and/or take money out of our members’ pocket. 

Union negotiator Sonia Taylor commented, “Your union bargaining committee has no intention of agreeing to these concessions. We had hoped to be further...

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.”
