Red River Co-operative Lorette members ratify new agreement

On July 29, 2021, UFCW Local 832 members from Red River Co-op in Lorette voted in favour of ratifying a new collective agreement.

  • New orientations and reduced probation periods
  • Work schedules posted for two-week periods
  • Four hours pay for full-time employees when their schedule changes without 48 hours’ notice
  • Reduced years of service required to achieve five and six weeks of vacation entitlements
  • Improved footwear allowance
