No Frills Negotiations: Tentative Memorandum of Settlement Reached

Following two days of round-the-clock negotiations, your union negotiating committee reached a Memorandum of Settlement with No Frills at 3 a.m. on Saturday, September 17, 2022.

Due to members' strong support of their negotiating committee, we were able to reach a fair settlement. The negotiating committee is unanimously recommending the settlement to members. 

A ratification vote will be scheduled in the coming weeks where members will be able to review the details of the Memorandum of Agreement. Vote details will be posted at and on your union bulletin board once scheduled. 

At your union’s request, a Ministry of Labour conciliation officer joined this latest negotiations session after talks showed little movement during previous dates. A conciliation officer’s role is to mediate talks and assist the union and the employer to resolve their differences and achieve a collective agreement. 

In July, members voted 96% in favour of a giving their committee a strong strike mandate if a fair settlement could not be reached. Previous negotiations sessions took place in March, April, June and July. 

Your union negotiating committee thanks members for their unwavering support through the process.

As always, your union representative is available to answer any questions you may have.

In Solidarity, 

Wayne Hanley (he/him)
President, UFCW Canada Local 1006A
