Rogers Sugar Inc. is halting negotiations with striking workers at its Vancouver refinery after their latest offer was turned down. The strike, which began on September 28, centers on issues like pay, benefits, and the company’s push for continuous 24/7 operations and 12-hour shifts. Workers are opposed to giving up weekend family time for work. The strike has led to sugar shortages in Western Canada. While Rogers Sugar has enough white sugar supply, it has resumed brown sugar production. The Vancouver plant is one of Canada’s three major cane sugar refineries. The union is working on a counterproposal.
