UFCW 8 Reaches Tentative Agreement for Yosemite Wholesale and Save Mart Office contracts

UFCW 8-Golden State has reached a tentative agreement with Save Mart for members working at Yosemite Wholesale and Save Mart's main office.

The settlement comes after particularly challenging and complex negotiations. “We were able to reach an agreement that protects the livelihood, healthcare and retirement security of our members,” said President Jacques Loveall.

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.


 



 

Northern CA Retail Negotiations Update - October 24, 2018

UFCW 8-Golden State and Raley’s Supermarkets have signed an agreement to extend the terms of current labor agreements, including those covering members working Nob Hill Foods and Food Source, at least through Nov. 13. This means Union members’ wage standards, benefits and workplace rules are protected through this stage of the negotiations.

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.

Similar agreements have already been reached with Safeway and Save Mart.

We remain committed to negotiating a contract our members will be proud to ratify. Stand strong and continue to support your Union, and together we will prove …

Solidarity Works!


 



 

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!
