To All UFCW Members Employed by Food 4 Less:
Our union contract expires on June 7, 2020. The contract expiration gives us the opportunity to make changes to our working conditions and improve our wages and benefits.
Last year, we successfully negotiated wage increases and benefit improvements for the workers at Ralphs/Vons/Albertsons. The medical improvements, including dental and vision roll-over and the availability of Kaiser to those hired after 2004 with more than 6.5 continuous years in the industry, apply to Food 4 Less workers automatically. The wage increases and other changes to your working conditions are not guaranteed and must be negotiated separately before June 7, 2020. It is therefore critical to have your participation in the contract campaign.
The process of negotiating a new contract usually takes several months. At the end of the process, you get to vote to accept or reject the changes offered by the Company. Member participation and input throughout this process is extremely important and will help to achieve better working conditions and higher wages.
We need to hear from you about the workplace issues that you and your coworkers care about to ensure that our proposal to the Company reflects your needs. This contract survey is a key opportunity to share your concerns and ideas about what changes or improvements you would like to see at work. You can also update your contact information to receive negotiation updates.
This survey will only be used to develop proposals and bargaining strategies for the upcoming negotiations. Your responses will not be shared with your Company.
Please complete the survey online at surveymonkey.com/r/TR7LNVR as soon as possible.
Thank you for your input and your support.
