Safeway Extra- Willowbrook Update, Arbitrator Assigned

As previously mentioned, The UFCW 247 filed a grievance  over Safeway/Sobeys announcement that they planned to convert the Willowbrook Langley Safeway store to a Safeway Extra, a new banner. We received a response from the Company stating that they were denying the grievance and wished to have it referred to arbitration as soon as possible. It is the same position they took with a similar grievance filed by UFCW Local 1518. We have been informed that Mark Brown has been assigned the file and we are coordinating dates between the parties.

We will continue to update you regarding our progress.
