Dominion striking workers in Newfoundland and Labrador have offered to help the grocery donate perishable food from its stores in the province and donate it to food banks.

“We are aware that there are perishables in the stores and there are people in need across Newfoundland,” said Unifor national president Jerry Dias. “Unifor has reached out to Loblaw Companies Limited to inform that our frontline grocery members are willing to assist any way we can to get the perishables out of the stores and into the hands of not-for-profit organizations that would distribute the food.”

More than 1,400 workers at 11 Dominion locations across Newfoundland began strike action on Saturday August 22, 2020 after voting to reject the contract offered by Dominion parent company Loblaw Companies Limited.
