Unifor and Labatts begin contract negotiations

Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Edmonton—Workers at the Labatt facility in Edmonton will begin bargaining a new contract with AB Inbev this week.

“Unifor members at Labatts are united in their call for fair wages and benefits,” said Todd Romanow, Unifor National Representative.

Romanow says that key issues in this round of negotiations will be ending the two-tiered wage and benefit system as well as dealing with a broken disciplinary process.

“Unifor is well-prepared to defend the rights and benefits of our members at Labatts,” said Deb Tveit, an Assistant to the Unifor National President. “Concessions are a non-starter.”

Unifor Local 250A represents 114 members working in brewing, production, packaging, and maintenance.
