Strike averted at 17 No Frills stores in Ontario
Unifor reached a tentative deal on behalf of almost 13-hundred No Frills workers across Ontario over the weekend, averting a looming strike that was set to get underway today.
The union had announced the strike deadline on Thursday, calling for higher wages and better working conditions for employees at 17 stores in Toronto, Whitby and elsewhere in the province.
Unifor Local 414 president Gord Currie says the workers knew the public would have their back in demanding a fair share of the growing profits of the discount grocery banner's parent company, Loblaw Cos. Ltd.
The No Frills workers, most of whom are part-time, will now vote on the tentative deal from Monday to Saturday.
