Grocery Store Contract Vote

“It’s time to stand up and show the employers that if they don’t take their cuts off the table and agree to better wages, fully funded health care and a pension that we can depend on, we are ready to authorize a strike” - Our Grocery Store Bargaining Team

Grocery Store Bargaining Team


We’ve been in negotiations for nearly 6 months. By November 1, the Bargaining Team will either have a proposal from the Employers that we will recommend for ratification, or the Bargaining Team will recommend to authorize a strike.

These votes are open to all active-member UFCW 21 Grocery Store Workers in King, Snohomish, Kitsap, Mason, and Thurston Counties at the big chains and independent stores.

Only contracts that have expired are eligible to take a strike authorization vote, independent stores whose Employers have signed interim agreements (“Me Too Agreements”) are not eligible to vote on a strike at this time. Active members are eligible to vote at whichever location is most convenient, at any time when polling is open.
