Saskatoon Co-op says more of its striking employees are putting down the picket signs and heading back to work. Over the last week, the company says 12 more employees have gone back to work after picketing for the last three months. Co-op says those who have continued to work through the strike or have returned to work, numbers more than 200. CEO Grant Wicks says, “We’re reaching a critical mass that’s allowing us to bring back the level of service that our members and customers expect.” Wicks says, “Contrary to what’s been shared by the union, our management bargaining committee wants to negotiate, as long as those discussions are genuine and moving us forward.” He accuses the union of going back on what has already been agreed to.
