Save-On-Foods Bargaining Update June 29

Tentative Agreement Reached

After many long days and bargaining into the early hours of this morning, your Bargaining Committee has reached a tentative agreement with Save-On-Foods which they are recommending to members! 

We are now in the process of finalizing the Memorandum of Settlement and explanatory documents. We will be setting up an Advisory Committee meeting, Shop Stewards call, member information meetings, and store visits to review the agreement prior to voting. 

Details will be provided to Save-On-Foods members starting early next week, so please stay tuned to your email for more information on the tentative agreement and upcoming ratification vote.

If you or your co-workers do not receive our emails, now is the time to send us your full name, employee ID, store number, cell phone number, and email address to

In solidarity,
