Grocery Worker Contract Update – 9/8/19

September 8, 2019

Members of UFCW Local 135:

We are proud to announce that a tentative agreement has been reached with both companies.

We know the road to get here has been a long one for you and your co-workers. Your dedication to standing up for good jobs – engaging tens of thousands of customers with over 200 community rallies and store actions – has been the driving force behind getting a deal that you can be proud to have stood up for.

Because you are part of a union family, you have a voice, and a vote. 

Let’s make it count.

Your vote is what will seal the deal and ratify your contract. You are the ultimate decider on the terms of your employment. At your voting location, you will get a copy of the tentative agreement as well the opportunity to ask questions and go over the entire package.

Contract ratification votes will take place September 9 and 10.

The decision to protest, to take a stand for a better life, is a tough one. But, when we stand together, when we engage our coworkers, customers, friends, families, and neighbors, we strengthen working families and protect customer service in our communities. When we stand together, we win.

Thank you for everything you have done during this negotiation process, it has been an honor to represent you.

You are what keeps grocery jobs good jobs in California.
