May 26, 2016

The Canada Bread Company is closing its operations in North Bay and ceasing all production as of August 5, 2016.

The announcement, made May 25, will affect 52 members of UFCW Local 175 at the facility, as well as 10 salaried workers.

A document provided by the company cites the age of the facility, the investment required to update it, along with the ability to produce the same product lines more efficiently at other existing facilities as reasons for the closure.

The Union will meet with company representatives shortly to discuss the wind up process that will take place over the next couple of months.

If Members have any questions, please contact your Union Representative Jeff Barry directly.
