Unionized workers of Safeway and FreshCo locations in five Manitoba cities have voted 98 per cent in favour of a strike mandate. The United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 832 members gave their union the strike mandate as it negotiates a new contract. The union said workers at the grocery store chains, UFCW and Sobeys Capital Inc. have been at the bargaining table since late 2021. The current contract expires March 19 and the two sides are expected to continue bargaining this week, as reported by UFCW and CBC News.
