Ufcw Superstore Collective Agreement

This is the WEBSITE of UFCW 1400 in Saskatchewan. For more information about UFCW Canada, please visit our national website at www.ufcw.ca There are many levels to conclude a properly amended collective agreement, and the latest settlement protocol was a long and complicated one. We appreciate your patience and understanding, while ensuring that the collective agreement is properly amended. Following ratification, the EU has secured a personal employment guarantee for all full-time workers on the wage list. Thus, in addition to the 1491 who are protected by previous agreements, another 339 full-time workers will be protected. In total, this agreement extends employment protection to a total of 1830 full-time workers. RCSS/CCR Part-time workers hired prior to June 12, 1994 receive a total increase of $2.10 per hour during the duration of the agreement. This implies that, since ratification, local union officials have worked naively to ensure that the negotiated amendments to the settlement memorandum are properly incorporated into the new collective agreement. Your local union has kept you informed and supported in this painstaking process with the “Know Your Options,” “Comparison Benefits,” “Building a Brighter Future” and “Securing Your Future” documents. The comparison memorandum was also disseminated and published online. Members of the stores concerned voted at meetings held between February 23 and February 27, 2020.

The ratified agreement will bring substantial improvements to the more than 11,100 members in 63 agencies operating under the GFS and RCSS banners. The Loblaws agreement and the Real Canadian Superstore parties to the collective agreement are also in progress for production. The RCSS collective agreement is now in the final phase of production. It is currently under final review for pressure. Once a final electronic version is available, it will also be published online. These early discussions have enabled the Union to achieve millions of improvements beyond what is envisaged in the existing agreement. In addition, the Union has secured further improvements for members, which will expire during the three-year extension period. The new agreement expires on July 1, 2024. Part-time workers of the CCR who maintain their economy receive a wage increase of $1.45 per hour during the term of the contract. These include the date on which the existing collective agreement expired on July 1, 2021.

By ratifying this agreement, the Union will ask the Ontario Labour Relations Council (OLRB) to authorize the opening and early implementation of the negotiated agreement.
