Agreement Reached on CAO Positions

Local 247 and Westfair Foods have come to an agreement on the recently introduced CAO (Computer Assisted Ordering) position. The issue was the Company had taken the position that there were to be two excluded full-time positions which the Union opposed. After many discussions, the parties have agreed that prior to the end of 2008 there will be one excluded CAO Supervisor in place pre Real Canadian Superstore. Through attrition, the second COA Supervisor exclusion will be eliminated and replaced with a full-time CAO clerk who is a member of Local 247.

This results in an additional full-time position available to bargaining unit members. Corporate Extra Foods will not have a CAO exclusion and will operate with two part-time CAO clerks, also members of Local 247.
