The strike is now over and employees are headed back to work at the four CO-OP locations in Moose Jaw.

For 36 days, UFCW Local 1400 members and supporters could be seen picketing and after a small hand full of failed attempts, the two sides were finally able to reach an agreement that the union voted in favour of earlier this week.

CO-Op General Manager Gerry Onyskevitch says the new agreement preserves the wage scale that was negotiated for new employees in the previous collective agreement, a point that was critical to the long-term competitiveness of Moose Jaw Co-op but was an issue of contention according to previous union posts on social media. However, the release does explain that the final offer reduced the wage difference between longer-term employees and those hired more recently

"The majority of the membership felt that this movement was significant enough to ratify this agreement and are working on a back to work strategy for our members," said UFCW Director of Negotiations Rod Gillies.

Gillies said they will transition members back into their jobs over the next little while and want to thank the public for their support during the last five weeks.
