Over 400 full-time workers at Highbury Canco in Leamington, Ontario, that are represented by Local 175 of the United Food & Commercial Workers have commenced strike.
While talking about the development, Shawn Haggerty, president of UFCW Local 175 said: “Our members make high-quality products that consumers purchase from grocery shelves nationwide.
“Highbury Canco should be a leader in this sector and start prioritizing the well-being of its employees who deserve to make good competitive wages.”
In November 2022, UFCW Local 175 membership voted 99.9% in favour of a strike. The two sides met on three different occasions.
The final offer from the company came on February 8.
