Westfair Announces Centralized Meat Cutting Facility

We have just been notified that Westfair Foods has announced that they have an agreement with Cargill Foods to supply meat products to many of their banners in Western Canada. What we do not know at this point is what stores will be affected or the time line of the change. We realize that the Company has already spoken to many 247 members in regards to the facility and its impact on their situation. We were not made aware until we received calls from our members that this change was taking place, as up until this point it had just been rumoured. Once we obtain further information, we will update members via the website and through store postings. People who have been notified by the Company that their job may be affected should call their full time Union Representative.
