Grocery Store Bargain Update: Full Tentative Agreement Recommended for Ratification

Final Step of Pension Deal Completed, Full Tentative Agreement Recommended for Ratification

“Standing together and taking action is how we have won before and it is how we won again this time. Your voice and your vote matters. Attend a vote meeting to learn about the Tentative Agreement and make your voice heard.”  - Your Union Member Bargaining Team

We have been working all week to see if we could finalize the details of a pending pension deal with Albertsons/Safeway and Kroger. We are very happy to announce that we have now reached a full tentative agreement, including this deal on our pension. 

The pending details between Albertsons/Safeway and Kroger have been ironed out and we now have a Fully Recommended Agreement.

After 6 months of negotiations, hundreds of actions in our stores across the region, and connecting with thousands of customers about our campaign, your Union Member Bargaining Team has reached a tentative agreement and recommends a YES VOTE to accept the proposal from the employers.
Drop by any of the posted vote meetings during any of the open times, review the offer, get questions answered, and then vote. 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. Active members are eligible to vote at whichever location is most convenient, during any time when polling is open.
