Loblaw's Distribution Centres - Bargaining Update

Our Loblaw’s distribution centres' bargaining committee has concluded three days of negotiations with the employer.

Previously, negotiations were stalled due to concerns related specifically to the distribution of overtime at DC 1935.  Sub-committee meetings were setup with DC 1935 management and various options were considered and discussed. During this week's bargaining meetings, agreement (in principal) was reached with respect to some overtime access issues; however, some main seniority preference and work week issues were not addressed to the satisfaction of our bargaining committee.  The employer agreed to take these issues away to analyze further.

 We are tentatively confirming future bargaining dates in November where we are hopeful that these issues will be addressed.
