Edmonton, Alberta – September 30, 2019. UFCW Local 401 members working at Safeway Gas Bars have ratified a new three-year collective agreement by 92%.
Highlights of the new agreement include:
An important achievement at the bargaining table was stopping language proposed by Sobeys that would allow management to have members working alone through the day shifts. Day or night, working alone causes health and safety risks.
“Congratulations to the committee for their excellent work and dedication,” said union lead negotiator Al Olinek. “This contract represents an important win for our Safeway Gas Bar members.”
UFCW Local 401 is Alberta’s largest private-sector union, representing more than 32,000 union members working in diverse sectors of the Alberta economy, including the food and beverage production, retail, transportation, and agriculture sectors.
