Grand Forks members Vote 83 percent to Strike

UFCW Local 247 members employed at the Extra Foods location in Grand Forks have overwhelmingly voted in favour of strike action, if necessary, in an attempt to jump start negotiations for a first collective agreement. The vote took place on Wednesday August 30th and the meetings were well attended as members sought an update on the process to date. Local 247 was certified as the bargaining agent on February 24th of this year and several bargaining sessions have taken place. The Union informed the company of the outcome of the vote and expressed a desire to return to the bargaining table.
