PRESS RELEASE: FEBRUARY 19, 2018

UFCW 247 has now been officially notified in writing by Sobeys that the company intends to open stores in B.C. under its “FreshCo” banner.

Sobeys had previously announced in December their intention to convert up to 25% of its stores in Western Canada (Safeway in B.C.) to what it calls the “discount” FreshCo banner over the next 5 years.

While Sobeys has stated they want talks to begin for a FreshCo contract under the terms of LOU No. 12 (new banner language) of the contract, nothing is scheduled at this time, and no dates have been set to discuss this issue.
