Sobeys has informed UFCW Local 247 and 1518 that the company intends to reopen the Safeway in Burquitlam as a Safeway Extra at the end of January 2017. The store closed back in August of 2012 and we have asked the Company for updated information regarding members who still had the option of returning to any new store.

The Company has said they wish to meet and discuss terms of a collective agreement. We will be discussing our options with legal counsel and  Local 1518 and will keep you updated.
