Grocery Store Member Bargaining Team Meets

Contract Negotiations to Begin on March 12th

Our Union member bargaining team gathered this week to make final preparations for the 1st bargaining session with our employers in the upcoming contract negotiations that will begin in March.  These negotiations are our opportunity to improve and protect our wages, benefits and working conditions. Work over many months, meetings with members, getting a record number of member surveys, and holding a great kick off with leaders from stores across the region have all helped to pull together a strong bargaining team and to prepare a series of our initial proposals to improve our jobs in our union grocery stores. UFCW 21 and Teamsters 38 will be negotiating together again this year. The bargaining team is made up of members from across the region and from all banners, as well as a diverse representation of various departments, experience levels, and each of the contracts that will be renegotiated.


You are all invited to join a live Telephone Town Hall on the evening of March 12th and we will relay what happened on the first day of bargaining and answer member questions. You will receive a phone call in advance with details.
