Refinery, union reach tentative deal

A tentative deal has been reached in the dispute between the Co-op Refinery Complex and Unifor 594.

The deal, according to a news release issued by Federated Co-op, includes “the monetary aspects of our best and final offer along with a well defined return-to-work agreement.”

The releases said the offer “balances an appreciation for our unionized employees with the fiscal realities of the refining sector.”

The workers at the Regina refinery were locked out after voting in favour of a strike about six months ago.

Union members have been disrupting traffic, picketing the Saskatchewan legislature and protesting at various fuel locations on the Prairies since then.

A ratification vote is required.
