Superstore workers were among the 3,000 union members across the province who voted to accept a new five-year deal Sunday.

Superstore and Extra Foods workers in Manitoba won’t be walking the picket lines anytime soon.

Members of UFCW Local 832, which represents 3,000 workers across the province, voted to accept a new five-year deal Sunday by 91.4 per cent. Details of the contract were in place last month, but local members waited to see what workers in Alberta and Saskatchewan did with their negotiations before moving forward.

The deal offers members a 13 per cent wage increase over the term of the contract, with more full-time jobs and also more guaranteed hours. The agreement also saves over 400 jobs at Extra Foods and is expected to lead to the opening of new stores across the province, according to the release put out by the union.

The new deal takes effect today, with workers receiving retroactive pay regarding wage increases dating back to Sept. 28, when the previous agreement expired.
