UFCW Canada has been informed that Loblaw is telling workers in several provinces to complete a “LoblawReward Survey”.
Loblaw workers need to know that UFCW Canada is very concerned about this survey, and your union feels this survey is tainted and may be used as a tool by the company to undermine your collective agreements, and to cut the benefits you and your coworkers deserve and have rightfully earned.
ATTENTION PART-TIMERS AT LOBLAWS AND RECENTLY CONVERTED LOBLAWS GREAT FOOD STORES
Your union is pleased to announce that we have won a court injunction to stop Loblaws Supermarkets Ltd’s inappropriate application of Letter of Understanding 59 as detailed in your collective agreement. Letter of Understanding 59 concerns the conversion of a conventional store to a Great Food banner and states if you don’t regularly work a particular time or day at your Loblaws store, you will not be required to make yourself available for work at that time or day in the Great Food banner if it’s for legitimate reasons and not personal preference.
Nothing is more important for your union than protecting and improving life for you and your family. That’s why we fought hard to ensure your economic security when Loblaw Companies Ltd informed us during the 2010 negotiations that it intends to convert all its conventional stores. With your support, we negotiated five options to secure your livelihood as you transition to the Great Food banner.
