The five-month strike for union rights and recognition by UFCW Canada members  at Covered Bridge Potato Chips has ended successfully with union members ratifying a first collective agreement on May 24, putting an end to the two-year struggle at the Wakefield, New Brunswick snack food processor. The three-year agreement achieved all of the major goals of the members including seniority provisions, job protection language, and wage and benefit gains.


The union has warmly thanked all those who supported their long struggle.
