The Manitoba Federation of Labour, representing over 100,000 unionized workers in the province, is supporting the call by UFCW 832 to boycott all Stella’s locations in the province, MFL president Kevin Rebeck announced today following a vote by the MFL’s Executive Council. 

“Workers at the Stella’s Sherbrook location are on strike because of the continued disrespect shown to them by their employer,” said Rebeck. “And instead of realizing the error of their ways, this employer continues to dig in and treat their workers poorly. Enough is enough, it is time for to show your support for fairness in the workplace and boycott this employer until they start treating workers with respect.”

As a result of constant attempts at worker intimidation and suppression, UFCW 832 is calling on the public and the broader labour community to boycott Stella’s at all locations:

1.    Stella’s Sherbrook – 116 Sherbrook Street

2.    Stella’s Catering & Commissary – Unit16 – 1100 Waverley Street

3.    Stella’s Bakery – 110 Sherbrook

4.    Stella’s Grant – 195 Grant Avenue

5.    Stella’s at Plug In – 460 Portage Avenue

6.    Stella’s au CCFM – 340 Provencher Boul.

7.    Stella’s on Pembina – 1463 Pembina Highway

8.    Stella’s YWG – This location is closed

The strike and boycott will continue until either the employer come to the table, and we resolve the outstanding issues. Or at the end of 60 days, either side can apply to end the strike through alternate dispute resolution.
