Workers at a Loblaw distribution centre in Ajax, ON have voted in favour of strike action in their negotiations with the company.
Members of Unifor Local 222, who work at the Loblaws Ajax Distribution Centre, voted 98 per cent in favour of strike action in a unit meeting held January 23, as reported in a Unifor press release. The local represents about 1000 workers. The current collective agreement expires February 9.
The union says its members are advocating for respect in the workplace, for the establishment of a pension, and against increasingly precarious work conditions.
