UFCW Canada Local 1000A and Loblaw Companies Ltd. returned to the negotiating table on July 2 at the request of an Ontario Ministry of Labour mediation officer.
Two days of negotiations between the parties resulted in an amended offer on July 3.
The union postponed its strike deadline of Sunday, July 5, to allow members time to examine and vote on the amended offer.
Ratification votes were scheduled across the province, to end on July 8.
Should the new offer be rejected, strike action will begin at 12:01 a.m. on July 11 at all 60 Loblaws and Superstore locations across Ontario.
Approximately 12,000 employees will be affected by the vote.
