LANGLEY, BC - Canada Bread Company, Limited and the Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco, Workers and Grain Millers (BCTGM) Local 468, which represents associates who work in the bakery located in Langley, BC, have successfully ratified a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. This brings an end to the strike/lockout that commenced on April 1, 2017.

We would also like to deeply thank our salaried associates who diligently baked our bread at the bakery every day for their dedication. We owe everyone involved a huge debt of gratitude for their ongoing collaboration.
