Rogers Sugars has introduced a tentative settlement with the union representing 140 putting staff at its Vancouver refinery, in line with a Friday assertion from the corporate.
No particulars of the tentative deal have been launched. A ratification vote is predicted subsequent week.
The employees, represented by Personal and Public Employees of Canada (PPWC) Native 8, have been putting since Sept. 28, 2023.
CBC has reached out to PPWC Native 8 for remark.
Talks final broke off in December with the 2 sides at odds over the corporate’s demand for 12-hour shifts. Rogers Sugar made the demand because it wished to extend refinery operations to 24 hours a day, one year per yr.
The corporate has been working the Vancouver refinery at a diminished capability in the course of the job motion, and the strike has led to intermittent sugar shortages in Western Canada.
The Rogers Sugar plant in Vancouver is considered one of solely three giant sugar refineries within the nation that processes imported cane sugar.
