Rogers Sugar management has suspended negotiations after its latest offer was rejected by the union representing striking workers.

We have done our best to break the current impasse, including proposing several reconsiderations during the negotiations. We are disappointed that no acceptable solution has been found, the company said in a press release.

Given the current position of the union bargaining committee, we are interrupting negotiations.

< p class="StyledBodyHtmlParagraph-sc-48221190-4 hnvfyV">According to Adrian Soldera, president of Local 8 of the Canadian Union of Private and Public Sector Workers, negotiations broke down because Rogers wants operations at the refinery to be continuous and therefore wants to impose 12-hour shifts.

They offered us different schedule choices, but the problem for our members is that they have to give up their weekend, from time spent with family, to come to work, he said, adding that the union is preparing a counter-offer.

We want to return to work, but our workers are very opposed to certain offers from the company.

The strike, which began September 28, caused sugar shortages in Western Canada this fall. However, Rogers Sugar says there is enough white sugar on the market right now to meet demand.
