Sobeys, Loblaw Support Employees Effected by Wildfire 
                                                                              
We have been informed by Sobeys that they plan to continue paying the Safeway employees in 100 Mile while the store is closed due to the Wildfires.

Loblaw has also indicated they are doing the same for Wholesale Club members in Williams Lake as they have chosen to voluntarily close the store ahead of any official evacuation notice. We applaud both Company's decision and thank them. 

Local 247 President Suzanne Hodge has asked both company's to suspend the deduction of dues from any monies paid to our members in those locations. We are also exploring other options to assist members effected and urge all members to donate through the Canadian Red Cross site found here- Canadian Red Cross
