PRESS RELEASE: MARCH 14, 2018

Jump To:

UFCW 247 is working to get clarification from Sobeys-Safeway on several issues regarding Sobeys plans to close stores in Metro Vancouver.

The issues the union is trying to sort out with Sobeys exist largely because Sobeys intends to close multiple stores at once, and the complications that flow from this.

Section 54 of the BC Labour Relations Code states the employer and union must meet in good faith for meaningful discussions to develop an adjustment plan for impacted union members. The union and company are focused specifically on Sobey’s store closures.

New information about Sobey`s store closures will be posted on the UFCW 247 website as it becomes available.
