“It is disappointing that the Unifor 594 Executive has chosen to take their members on strike before the holidays,” Vice-President of Operations Gil Le Dressay said in the release.

Co-op says it is still open to negotiations and will be reaching out to the Unifor 594 Executive in an attempt to prevent a strike. 

“Our goal has never changed. We want to negotiate a fair deal and we are asking the Unifor 594 Executive to rescind their 48-hour Strike Notification and resume bargaining,” Le Dressay said.
