Local 1000A’s No Frills Bargaining Committee has requested the appointment of a conciliation officer to assist at upcoming meetings. In the meantime, the committee met with company officials on July 26 and July 27 and previously on July 14 and July 15.
Members of the Local 1000A No Frills Bargaining Committee met on May 25, 2011 to discuss and vote on proposals to take into negotiations, which will kick off June 21, 2011.
The committee is made of Local 1000A members from No Frill and Valu-Mart stores across Ontario, along with Local 1000A staff members. Executive Vice-President Kevin Benn will be chairing the union’s negotiations team.
UFCW Local 1000A is seeking proposals for bargaining from all No Frills members across Ontario. The No Frills contract expires on June 30, 2010, with negotiations expected to begin this April. We encourage all members that want to suggest improvements to their working conditions to complete a proposal sheet and submit it to your staff representative. Alternately, you can fax your proposals to 905.850.0839 or mail them to the union office. All proposals must be received by March 1 to be guaranteed consideration. Be sure to take your future in your hands! Participate in the bargaining process by attending upcoming meetings to voice your concerns!
