Solidarity Works

Retail Food Negotiation Update, Northern California – February 11, 2019

Negotiations with Raley’s/Bel Air/Nob Hill, Safeway/Vons, and Save Mart/Lucky are proceeding slowly. Additional meetings are scheduled this month and we are committed to reaching an agreement which rewards the efforts and hard work of our members.

Contract protections remain in effect as we continue bargaining with management.

Something to keep in mind as negotiations progress, companies are constantly looking to reduce their costs to increase profits. To the company, workers are an expense.

Your Union represents your interests, and only your interests, at the bargaining table. We are focused on achieving the best possible contract for all members.

Solidarity also plays an important role in strengthening our member’s wages, health benefits, pension, and working conditions. Continue supporting your Union bargaining team in word and deed.

Together we will prove once again … Solidarity Works!

The best thing members can do is avoid the rumor mills, if you have questions contact your District Union Representative, and make sure the company and your co-workers know we are united in our goal of achieving a better contract. We will continue to keep you updated as negotiations progress.

Working together, we will prove once again ... Solidarity Works!

The new agreement includes significant wage increases, health care and pension protections and a bonus. 

Details of the tentative agreement will be presented to members working at Yosemite Wholesale and Save Mart Office for ratification in the coming days.

Contract negotiations for members working at Save Mart, Lucky and Food Maxx supermarket locations remain ongoing.

After Nov. 13, the contract extension will continue on a day-to-day basis. Either side will be able to cancel the extension with seven days’ notice.

Northern CA Retail Negotiations Update - October 12, 2018

As we proceed with contract negotiations, UFCW 8-Golden State and two of the three major supermarket employers in Northern California — Safeway and Save Mart/Food Maxx/Lucky — have agreements to extend the terms of each of the current labor agreements at least through Nov. 13. This means Union members’ wage standards, benefits and workplace rules are protected through this stage of the negotiations with each separate employer.

After Nov. 13, the contract extension will continue on a day-to-day basis. Either side will be able to cancel the extension with seven days’ notice.

The same extension has been offered to Raley’s.  As further information becomes available, we will keep you informed.

UFCW 8 remains committed to negotiating a contract our members will be proud to ratify. In the meantime, stand strong and proud with your Union, and always remember:

 Solidarity Works!
