Local 1518 members leafleting Westfair stores

UFCW Local 1518 members employed at the Park Royal Extra Foods have been out on strike since the middle of January, 2006 and Local 247 members at this location have been picketing in support of their 1518 brothers and sisters. Local 1518 members will be informational leafleting various Westfair locations, including many Local 247 stores, until a settlement is reached. They will be contacting us the day before the leafleting to make us aware of the location they have targeted and we will contact the Shop Stewards for the store to let them know.

These are not legal picket lines but a way for Local 1518 members to make the public aware of the circumstances at Park Royal and clarify statements the Company has made. You must continue to report to work as scheduled. The fight they are in is one which many Local 247 members may face in the coming months, and we would ask you to support the Local 1518 members but refrain from participating in the leafleting.

If you have questions on this or any other matter, please call the Union office at 604.535.8329 or 1.800.667.2205 and ask to speak to your Representative.
