“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
THE TIME HAS COME TO VOTE
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.
