Gillam Co-op Negotiations Ongoing

May 1, 2018

The Union and the Gillam Co-op commenced negotiations on April 24 to 26, 2018. Both sides brought many proposals to the table, which they would like to see negotiated into the renewed collective agreement on behalf of UFCW Local 832 members working at the Co-op.

During this first bargaining session, the parties did agree to some of the non-monetary items and had good discussions on several of the other proposals. However, the Co-op has proposed concessions, which the union is not willing to agree to. Therefore, the committees have set further dates, May 28 to 31, to continue negotiations.

Lead union negotiator Sonia Taylor will provide a further negotiations update after those meetings.
