Stellas Sherbrook Negotiations Hit a Snag

May 22, 2019


Negotiations for your first contract with Stella’s Café and Bakery have been underway since March 18th of this year. To date, we have had five days at the table and resolved a number of Articles in your new contract.

We have made steady progress over the two months at the table, recognizing that the issues we are dealing with in the early stages of bargaining are more minor in nature. As we moved the talks into more substantial issues, such as monetary proposals, reaching an agreement has become far more challenging.

Your representatives at the table are committed to doing everything possible to reach a tentative agreement with your employer so as of last week, we asked for the assistance of a Provincial Conciliation Officer from the Province of Manitoba.

Our next date was set for May 21 but we have had to reschedule to June 3rd based on the Conciliation Officer’s schedule. Your committee members will notify you of any and all future dates and we will keep you updated on any further progress at the bargaining table.

If you have any questions, please feel free to speak to a member of your bargaining committee or contact me at 204 786-5055 or by email at

In solidarity
