The SAQ says it might take a few weeks to restock the 400 stores across Quebec. SAQ shelves have been sparse for the last few weeks at one of busiest times of the year due to distribution from the warehouse.
Over 800 warehouse employees have been on strike for the last two weeks for a new collective agreement including an increase in salary. As of today the agreement was accepted with over 86% of the vote. The Quebec’s provincial liquor warehouse employees have not had a deal since April 2021.
The starting wage will be $22.50 per hour, up from $17 per hour.
Bottom line if you see what you like in the SAQ grab it! It might not be back on the shelves for a few weeks.
