UFCW 21 Update – November 10, 2015
Haggen Stores Up for Auction This Week, Motion Filed for Core Stores in Our Region to be Auctioned in January
You are probably hearing about events this week and the auctioning of some Haggen stores. Representatives from UFCW Locals and our International Union are at the auction for the 95 Haggen stores taking place this week. We are strongly presenting our position that these stores need to be bought by responsible store owners to ensure that our members can continue to provide for their families and give customers the great service that they expect.
In addition, Haggen announced today that they have filed a motion to auction additional stores early next year. Included in these additional stores are core stores in our region. A full list of our region’s additional stores are listed below.
Keeping Updated, Standing Together
We will, as we have done over the last several months, work to monitor the situation and keep members updated as this all develops.
It will continue to be very important for Haggen members to stand united for respect and fairness. Together, we will get through this difficult time best when we are united and clear that we all expect corporations to do right by the local communities.
Please call your Union Rep with questions at 1-800-732-1188 and wear your button to make sure our customers know we stand with them wanting the best for our local communities. While the hard-working men and women of Haggens have been experiencing untold frustration and concern during these past few months, we will stand together and support one another through these difficult times.
Our Local Unions stand ready to partner with responsible companies who understand the tremendous value of our hard-working members.
Earlier in October we sent members a list of the announced Haggen stores closing in our region. In a motion filed by Haggen late yesterday, additional stores may be auctioned in January 2016, including core stores in our region. These new stores include:
