Arbitrator Mark Brown Hears Submissions in "Safeway Extra" Case

On May 18th a hearing was convened by Arbitrator Mark Brown to hear from the parties concerning Sobeys' attempt to have "Safeway "Extra" declared a new banner.

 The Employer had previously announced their intention to convert  2 BC stores, Langley-Willowbrook Mall and Dawson Creek locations to the "Safeway Extra" banner. Grievances were immediately filed in response to these announcements by both UFCW 247 and 1518.

 Both Locals made legal submissions at the hearing as did the Employer. We will continue to update you as the matter progresses.
