Dauphin Co-op workers give strong strike mandate

July 10, 2019

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.”
 
The collective agreement expired on June 30 of 2018, UFCW 832 will be at conciliation with the employer on July 30 and 31.

A strike deadline has not yet been set.

UFCW 832 represents over 150 members at Dauphin Consumer Co-operative Ltd. including gas bar attendants, sales/service clerks, estimators, and drivers.
