TORONTO — Loblaw Cos. has reached tentative contract agreements with 30,000 workers in Ontario, the parties said.
The agreement was reached after an extended bargaining session Saturday. The workers, represented by four locals of the United Food and Commercial Workers union, had set a strike deadline this week if an agreement was not reached.
The union said it would withhold details of the agreement until after its members complete voting on the contract Wednesday. The contract covers workers at Loblaw, Zehrs, Superstore, Great Food and Fortinos stores throughout Ontario.
