Unifor had previously cited the increase in profit margins of Loblaw, the parent company of No Frills, as well as the rising cost of living to justify its union demands.

Employees at 17 No Frills grocery stores in Ontario have overwhelmingly ratified their new collective agreement on Saturday, says the Unifor union.

The agreement provides for wage increases of between $3.20 and $4.50 for the more than 1,200 employees for the duration of the new agreement.

It also includes a new benefits program for part-time employees as well as the creation of 30 new part-time positions to be filled over the next year.

No Frills is a grocery chain owned by Loblaw, the largest grocery chain in the country.

Unionized employees reached an agreement in principle on November 19, the day before the planned start of a walkout.

Earlier this summer, employees at 27 Metro grocery stores in the GTA went on strike for more than a month before a new tentative agreement was reached between the union and the employer.
