Loblaw Negotiations Update #2- Four Days in the Books

We now have four days of bargaining in the books. The first four days have seen us deal with almost all of the non-monetary proposals from each side. Other that the opening presentations, the monetary issues have been set aside and we anticipate focusing all of next week on dealing with them. This applies to both the Retail and Warehouse Committees.

We have struck a sub-committee to review the vacation language with hopes to try and clarify the selection process. We have also had quite a bit of discussion over the reduction/ lay-off language and its application. Both sides have asked for some time today to go through and update their packages and the Company is looking to be able to present a more comprehensive monetary position by Monday. We do not anticipate meeting over the weekend at this point.
