New Banner Announced by Safeway

 Safeway/Sobeys announced today plans to convert the Willowbrook Langley Safeway store to a Safeway Extra, a new banner.

The company sent notice in a letter this afternoon to UFCW Local 247 and that they planned to begin renovations next week on April 15t. The company referred to the New Banner Letter of Understanding #12 in the collective agreement.

Local 247 President Suzanne Hodge stated that the union will be considering its options over the next few days and will be discussing this further with their legal counsel. In addition, Safeway in the written notice has requested a meeting with Local 247. We will keep our members up to date once we determine the appropriate course of action.
