Striking employees of Saskatoon Co-op have rejected the most recent contract offer from the organization, according to a company news release.
Members of the UFCW Local 1400 voted on the newest offer on Friday. According to the news release sent out shortly after midnight, the offer was turned down by around 60 per cent of voting union members.
Saskatoon Co-op CEO Grant Wicks said in the news release he was “disappointed” with how the vote turned out, but said the close vote seemed like progress.
“Given how close the vote was, we’re still optimistic that we can work with the union and our employees to reach an agreement,” Wicks said.
Saskatoon Co-op employees have been striking since Nov. 1, with one of the main points of contention being a tiered pay system that would start new hires at a lower wage.
