Employees and Metro reach an agreement.

The workers from 27 Metro supermarkets across the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) reached an agreement with the grocery store giant shortly after midnight when they were ready to go on strike.

In a statement, Unifor's National President, Lana Payne, said: "This agreement will lay the groundwork for supermarket workers nationwide as both unionized and non-unionized workers make it clear they urgently need improvements in working conditions amid a chronic affordability crisis."

The details of the tentative agreement will not be disclosed before being presented to the members for ratification voting next week.

The workers, represented by Unifor, began negotiations in June with a 100 percent strike mandate. A strike would have affected approximately 3,700 workers across the GTA.

The union has stated that its priorities for Metro workers were to improve wages and access to benefits, as well as enhancing working conditions and stability.
