EPIC Opportunities Negotiations Underway

May 30, 2019

The union and the company bargaining committees met on May 23, 2019, to begin negotiations towards a new collective agreement for the members working at EPIC Opportunities Inc.

At this meeting, the union brought a very robust proposal package and the employer came in with a smaller proposal package.

Union negotiator Phil Kraychuk stated, “Our first initial meeting went well. We have more days booked, however, due conflicting schedules, our next meeting is not until July. However, one the union's proposals is retro pay.”

The parties also have dates booked in August and September. Negotiator Kraychuk will provide a further update after the September meeting, if not sooner. Members can go to the union’s website—www.ufcw832.com—for up-to-date information on their negotiations or other news from the Local.
