Members of the Local 1000A No Frills Bargaining Committee met with company officials on July 14 and July 15. This was the second set of meetings since both parties exchanged proposals on June 21 and the bargaining committee met on June 22.
The Local 1000A bargaining committee is made of members from No Frills and Valu-Mart stores across Ontario, along with local union staff members. Executive Vice-President Kevin Benn is chairing the union’s negotiations team.
Patricia Leggett, who works at Gus’ No Frills in Scarborough and a third-time bargaining committee member, said “We are hoping for a fair contract all around for everyone.”
The next set of meetings will take place on July 26 and 27.
