Old Dutch Snack Foods has locked out UFCW 401 members at its Calgary processing plant.

To help pressure the company to settle, the Canadian Labour Congress is asking its affiliated unions - including CUPE - to boycott Old Dutch snack foods and the following brands produced at the locked-out plant:

  • President’s Choice - Western Grocers
  • No Name - Western Grocers
  • Great Value - WalMart
  • Compliments Value - Sobeys
  • Safeway Blue Bags - Safeway
  • Co-op Krunchie - Co-op
  • Cyclone - Overwaite

“There are 170 families in Calgary who need our help,” said Paul Moist. “Affecting sales is one way we can do that.”
