Saskatoon Co-op has given a revised four-year contract offer to the union representing 900 striking workers.
According to the company, United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 1400 will present this latest offer to its members during a meeting on Sunday.
In a media release, Co-op said the four-year deal offers retroactive pay, signing bonuses, annual two per cent raises— which it says is in line with the union’s last offer— and wages for new employees that are higher than the competitors.
One of the major sticking points during contract talks is what the union calls Co-op’s plan to reduce wages for new hires.
The UFCW told Co-op it would present the revised offer to striking workers, but the union did not commit to taking a vote on it.
