Members at Sun Gro give Strong Strike Mandate

December 16, 2019

On December 15, 2019 - UFCW 832 members working at SunGro have voted 95% in favour of a strike mandate.

Union Negotiator Sonia Taylor said, "This strong strike mandate will show their employer that it's time to get serious at the bargaining table."

UFCW 832 has four days scheduled with the employer at the end of January, and we have set a strike deadline of 12:01 on Tuesday, February 4, 2020. If a fair deal cannot be reached with the employer by that time, then a strike will commence.

The collective agreement expired in June of 2019.

Sun Gro Hort Inc. is a peat moss producer of horticultural-grade peat. UFCW 832 represents all members who work at the Elma plant and harvesters at the Ramsay Bog.
