Voting on the new contract is set for Tuesday. The workers are represented by United Food and Commercial Workers Canada Local 401.

Members of the local who work at 55 Loblaw Real Canadian Superstore and Liquorstore locations went on strike on Sunday, in art because of concerns about being scheduled for too few hours each week.

“The new agreement will present employees with a number of significant improvements over and above the company’s last offer,” the union said in a statement on Monday.

It also asked workers to continue striking until the contract has been ratified by members.

Loblaw had reached tentative agreements with the leaderships of UFCW local 832 in Manitoba and UFCW local 1400 in Saskatchewan in the last two weeks.
