March 29, 2009 - The Fraser Valley Labour Council, in conjunction with the New Westminster & District Labour Council, CUPE, the United Steelworkers and other affiliated unions, attended a public rally to support all striking Local 1518 members at the Maple Ridge Extra Foods. Showing their solidarity with the workers and their families, dozens of supporters enjoyed a barbecue lunch and walked the picket line.

The ongoing battle with parent company Westfair/Loblaw's have seen the members of UFCW 1518 on strike for 14 weeks. Efforts for a new contract broke down last December when the employer would not agree to job security language or reasonable wage increases to a contract that expired almost 5 years ago.
