Workers at a Sobeys Inc. distribution centre in Quebec have gone on strike after negotiations between the company and the union broke down, a situation that could strain an already delicate food supply chain, as reported by Global News.

The union and the company reached an impasse after more than a dozen meetings since November, with pay and benefits emerging as the key sticking points, she said.

Sobeys spokeswoman Jacquelin Weatherbee said the company has contingency plans in place to support its stores in Quebec from neighbouring distribution centres.

“We are working very hard to ensure there is minimal impact to our IGA stores across the province,” she said in a statement.

“We are obviously disappointed in the outcome of these negotiations to date,” Weatherbee added. “All we want is a fair deal that is good for our teammates and keeps our business competitive.”
