Strike vote at Safeway

SAFEWAY workers across Manitoba voted overwhelmingly in favour of a strike Sunday night.

During meetings in six locations, members of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 832 voted 99.7 per cent in favour of giving their negotiating committee a strike mandate.

The collective agreement expires March 15 and more talks are scheduled before then, the union said late Sunday night.

The UFCW represents roughly 3,000 Safeway workers in the province.

Key issues include the elimination of a two-tier wage scale.

Driver hits RCMP cruiser

A 45-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested for drunk driving after sideswiping an RCMP cruiser near Pinawa.

The incident happened Sunday about 3 a.m. when the RCMP officers were on patrol on Provincial Road 211. An eastbound vehicle sideswiped their cruiser, shattering the driver's door window and sending one RCMP officer to hospital with minor injuries.

The impaired driver didn't stop at the scene, so the RCMP officers pursued him for about a kilometre until the suspect vehicle stopped.

The 45-year-old man was arrested for impaired driving and breach of conditions to abstain from alcohol.

The investigation continues.

Wanted man caught here

ONE of Edmonton's most wanted men was arrested in Winnipeg on Friday.

On Thursday, the Edmonton Police Service contacted the Manitoba Integrated Warrant Apprehension Unit and said a man wanted on 40 outstanding warrants, including some for drug and firearms offences, was living in Winnipeg.

On Friday, police found the man and arrested him.

Che Dean Lampman, 33, was detained at the Winnipeg Remand Centre, where he awaits his return to Edmonton.
