HALIFAX, Nova Scotia, Dec. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Over 200 community members once again gathered in downtown Halifax today to support striking workers at Pete’s Frootique, a grocery store owned by Sobeys. Jagmeet Singh, leader of Canada’s NDP, sent a message of solidarity and support to the workers, members of the Service Employees International Union Local 2. The strike is now in its third week.

“You deserve pay that keeps up with inflation,” said Singh in the recorded message. “The grocery store you work at is part of a corporate chain, Sobeys, which has made record profits and whose CEO is making huge bonuses.”
