Mediator to assist in Grand Forks Bargaining

Local 247 has asked to the BC Labour Relations Board to appoint a mediator to assist the local and Westfair Foods in reaching a first collective agreement for the Extra Foods store in Grand Forks. The two sides recently met on September 27th and while progress was made, there are several big issues still on the table. "We're still hopeful that a fair agreement can be reached", commented Dan Goodman-Director of Bargaining for the local. "We just feel that we're at a stalemate and perhaps a third party can help us reach a resolve."
