The Canadian Press: Loblaw-owned Dominion grocery workers’ new deal an ‘important victory’: expert

May 1, 2024 — 

Unifor has achieved an “important victory” after grocery workers at 11 Loblaw-owned Dominion stores in Newfoundland ratified a new deal Monday, a labour expert said.

After setting a precedent with a Metro strike in the Toronto area last year, “it looks like Unifor has successfully extended the pattern to the East Coast,” said Adam King, an assistant professor in the labour studies department at the University of Manitoba.

Workers voted 88 per cent in favour of the deal, which Unifor said will boost wages by $4.50 per hour for full-time workers by the end of the five-year agreement. Part-time workers will receive $3.20 per hour more.
