A tentative agreement has been reached between No Frills and Unifor, which represents more than 1,200 workers at 17 No Frills stores across Ontario.
“Our bargaining committee at No Frills was determined to build on what grocery store workers achieved last summer with Metro,” said Lana Payne, Unifor national president, in a statement.
“This agreement in principle provides for standard salaries and many other improvements for our members. »
Details of the agreement in principle will not be disclosed before being presented to members during ratification votes, which will take place in the coming days.
“No Frills workers knew the public would support them in their demand for their fair share of Loblaw’s huge profits,” said Gord Currie, President of Unifor Local 414.
