The union said Transforce, owner of Loomis, has imposed a bargaining deadline of June 11 to reach all collective agreements. There are five agreements, based on region — Nova Scotia (36 employees), Ontario (700 employees), Manitoba/Saskatchewan (165 employees), Alberta (365 employees), B.C. (430 employees.)
