Metro says it has reached tentative deal with union amid strike by grocery store workers

Metro says that it has reached a tentative deal with the union representing striking employees at 27 grocery stores around the Greater Toronto Area.

“The agreement, which is fair an equitable for our employees and our customers, is unanimously recommended by the union’s bargaining committee and will put an end to the labour dispute if ratified,” the company said in a statement Wednesday morning.

The tentative deal will be submitted to the employees, who are represented by UNIFOR, for a ratification vote that will take place “shortly,” the company said.
