Unifor confirms a return to bargaining with FCL set for Friday morning

A news release from Unifor Thursday morning has confirmed they will be meeting with Federated Co-operatives Limited Friday morning at 9:00 a.m. to begin negotiations.

Late Wednesday afternoon Unifor agreed to comply with an injunction regarding picket lines and blockades in front of the refinery complex, if Co-op agreed to return to the bargaining table.

Unifor says Co-op responded and agreed to those terms.

No other details will be released until a tentative deal is reached or negotiations dissolve.

Workers have been locked out of the refinery since December 5th after Unifor issued 48 hour strike notice.

Pension plans have been the main cause for the debate.

Unifor still plans on holding a rally outside the Saskatchewan Legislature Thursday at noon calling for Premier Scott Moe to impose binding arbitration and resolve the 56-day lockout.
