Further to my correspondence dated April 24, 2021, please be advised that your negotiating committee comprised of Tamara Giesbrecht, Kevin Materi, Tyler Flaman, Curt Miller, Terry Harris, Pablo Godoy (Regional Director, UFCW Canada), Lily Olson (National Representative, UFCW Canada) and myself met with your employer on May 18 & 19, 2021 as scheduled.

We were able to make some progress on non-monetary items. All monetary items will be addressed once non-monetary items have been dealt with.

We currently have no dates scheduled for bargaining but hope to set some over the summer.

Upon completion of the above noted bargaining dates, you will be informed of future dates as well as provided with an update on the state of the negotiation process.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at 306-292-8083 or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
