Unifor rejects latest offer from Co-op Refinery
After considering the final offer tabled on March 30 by Co-op Refinery, Unifor Local 594 Bargaining Committee is recommending the membership reject the offer when the forced final vote is conducted by the Saskatchewan Labour Board.
“We stand by the recommendations of Premier Scott Moe’s mediators,” said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President. “The mediators’ recommendations were thoughtfully crafted and balanced. They represent the best path forward for both oil and gas workers and the company.”
The Co-op’s latest final offer, their second in five days, included new concessions not included in the Special Mediators’ report.
On March 20, Local 594 members voted overwhelming to ratify the mediators’ recommendations to end the 117-day lockout.
