Arbitrator selects Union submissions in Safeway Extra FOS Award 

Arbitrator Ken Saunders has selected the collective agreements submitted by both UFCW Locals 247 and 1518 over the Company submission as being the collective agreements appropriate for the Safeway Extra banner. Earlier this year Sobeys announced plans to convert the Willowbrook (Langley) and Dawson Creek stores to the new banner. The Union proposal was focused on grandfathering (wages, pension, benefits etc.) and protection for existing members in conversion stores.

Union representatives will be in both locations to discuss the award and the contents of the collective agreement over the next few days. We will be posting a summary of the agreement soon.
