In a written statement sent Thursday morning, the union said it was working during negotiations to ensure that the return-to-work aspect of the agreement protects members from retaliation from Federated Co-operatives Limited. “Our industry is evolving and we are just beginning to see how new regulatory requirements and external pressures will shape the future of our industry,” said Le Dressay. “We must all recognize that these changes are imminent. We will be better off facing this future as partners if we work together to achieve our common goals and interests. The new collective agreement maintains the defined benefit pension plan and the company has adapted the business savings plan for existing workers. We are pleased that our collective agreement units have voted in favour of ratifying a new collective agreement. For more information, see our statement below.
