Grimm's Members to Vote on Deal

May 31, 2011

UFCW 247 members employed at Grimm's Fine Foods are set to vote on an extension to their collective agreement. Last year the Company informed the Union that they would not be able to extend the lease on the current property and would be exploring all options. Recently Company officials sat down with the Executive of the Local and told them that they would like to maintain a facility in Vancouver, had options to do so, but need to extend the current agreement in order to have cost certainty before committing to invest in the renovations needed to upgrade the site they were all looking at. The Union got the shop stewards together and met with the Company for almost two weeks in order to meet the deadling the Company had on purchasing the proposed property. A vote will be held this sunday at the Sheraton Guilford at 10 a.m. to let the members have their say on the recently reached memorandum.
