Strike Votes for IGA Members

Local 247 members employes at one of the Corporate IGA stores will be taking strike votes at meetings to be held on March 5. After numerous bargaining sessions the Company had presented a settlement offer touching on all the outstanding issues. The two sides met again on February 25th but were unable to come to a resolve. "I would like to think that a settlement is there," commented Dan Goodman, Local 247 Director of Bargaining. "Both sides have been creative in working towards a resolve and dealing with the final issues but ultimately we are not happy with the Company's position and it's time to bring our members up to speed."

We are urging members to attend one of the two meetings being held.
