A labour dispute between the union representing UFCW Local 1400 and the Moose Jaw Co-op is over after 36 days.
A tentative agreement has been signed with workers expected to be back on the job Thursday.
“We’re pleased an agreement was reached that was fair to both parties,” expressed Gerry Onyskevitch, General Manager of Moose Jaw Co-op in a written release sent out on Wednesday. “The new agreement preserves the wage scale that was negotiated for new employees in the previous collective agreement, a point that was critical to the long-term competitiveness of Moose Jaw Co-op. Our final offer reduces the wage difference between longer-term employees and those hired more recently.
It is not known what it is in the new collective bargaining agreement.
