Contract Negotiations Update 8/1/19

August 1, 2019

Negotiations wrapped up this week with management giving proposals on wages, pension, and health care, but the truth is, their proposals are unreasonable and insulting. We know that you are increasingly feeling the pressure of understaffing, unpredictable schedules, and low wages, but your employers’ proposals are significantly less than what you deserve.

That’s why we must continue to engage our co-workers, stores, communities, and customers and increase the pressure on your companies.

Please stay tuned for an announcement regarding a future action for members of UFCW Local 135 and our supporters to participate in.

We will be back at the negotiating table on August 12, 13 and 14 to engage in more contract talks. We will continue to negotiate for a contract that ensures that all current and future jobs at Ralphs, Albertsons, Vons, Pavilions, and Safeway are good jobs and will not settle for anything less than what you deserve.

If one of your fellow union co-workers isn’t receiving their union updates, have them text “grocery135” to 698329 to sign up for text updates. (msg & data rates may apply).
