Loblaw Negotiations Update #5- Wages Scales, Wage Increases Proposals Exchanged

We met with the Company until late in the evening and almost the entire day was spent discussing the wage scales and  increases for members. As per the norm in most sets of negotiations, the Employers initial offerings were well short of our mandate and there was concern that all the hard work from the previous week would be wasted and the day would be short. They have since amended their offer a number of times with the focus up to now being primarily on the actual wage scales themselves. At the end of the day they asked for time to prepare another comprehensive offer which we expect to see early today.
Our distribution center committee will also be meeting with the Company today separately to get into their monetary discussions.
