Local 247 Files Grievance over OFG Plans to Convert Whalley Save-On to PriceSmart Store

Local 247 has filed a grievance against the Overwaitea Food Group over the Company's plan to convert Save-On #997 in Whalley (Surrey) to a PriceSmart store. Company officials informed us that their position was that Local 247 members at store #997 would not be guaranteed employment in the PriceSmart store and would have to exercise their seniority in other Save-On Foods in the Fraser Valley. As UFCW Local 1518 also has members affected by this decision, we have been in contact with their legal council and will be having further discussions with the Company.
