Thousands of Real Canadian Superstore employees in Alberta could go on strike after an overwhelming vote in support of job action, as reported by the Edmonton Journal.
Ninety-seven per cent of voting members of the union voted to strike last week. About 10,000 union members work at Superstores in the province, said United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 401 spokesperson Scott Payne.
The latest round of bargaining is expected to last until Friday, October 1. Negotiations between the two sides have been ongoing for more than one year.
The union has 72 hours to serve strike notice if one occurs, Payne said.
