Details of the tentative settlement were not immediately available.

Unifor says the deal covers hourly drivers, owner-operators, call centre staff, clerical, and warehouse workers at Loomis Express locations in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
