Parking lots at Dominion Stores in Newfoundland were empty Sunday.
In Mount Pearl, at the Old Placentia Road location, workers holding “On Strike” signs and waving Unifor flags blocked all entrances to the grocery store.
“The members have spoken. They want to make it clear to their employer that they want to be treated with respect, decent jobs and good wages,” said Unifor Local 597 President Carolyn Wrice.
The union represents more than 1,400 Dominion workers at 11 locations across Newfoundland, from St. John’s to Stephenville.
