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 along but we do expect to make significant progress the next time we meet.”

Negotiations will resume on October 16 and continue on the 17th and 18th of October.
