Ralphs Rx Accepts, AlberVons Rejects Contract
As you may know, you and your colleagues have been voting on whether to ratify the contract offer presented for your consideration over the past three days.
While the contract offer is the same for all pharmacists, Ralphs pharmacists and Albertsons/Vons/Pavilions pharmacists have separate agreements and voted separately on the offers based on your employer:
For pharmacists who work at Ralphs, you have voted YES to ratify this contract. This means you now have a four-year contract in place, effective immediately. We will be asking Ralphs to institute the wage increases and return you to your previous schedules immediately.
For pharmacists who work at Albertsons, Vons, or Pavilions, you have voted NO to reject this contract.
For those of you that work at Albertsons, Vons, or Pavilions, we have asked the company to return to the bargaining table immediately to continue negotiations on your contract. We will be in touch with next steps as soon as possible.
