McKesson Canada strike is over!

After 66 days on the picket line, members of UFCW 401 at McKesson Canada are going back to work.

On Sept. 1, they voted 83 per cent in favour of a memorandum recommended by the union, that included significant pay raises and improvements in vision and dental care.

The strike by about 200 workers began in the final week of June to back up demands for wage fairness, benefit improvements, as well as issues of dignity and respect. Picket lines were set up at both McKesson warehouse locations, at 10931 - 177 Street and at 18503 - 107 Avenue.

UFCW 401 expressed their thanks to the AFL and others for support during the dispute.
