Negotiations with Albertsons, Ralphs and Vons continued last week. Discussions have been centered around scheduling and wage issues. Much work remains to be done and bargaining resumes next week with additional dates in May.
Lack of significant progress in negotiations has led to asking federal mediators to participate in future bargaining sessions. “We believe our members are entitled to meaningful wage increases for their hard work,” said Jacques Loveall, UFCW 8-Golden State President.
We need to continue demonstrating the seriousness of these negotiations and prevent the company from delaying. Member solidarity and support is an essential part of these negotiations. We will keep you informed as negotiations continue.
In the meantime, stay strong, stay united, and always remember, Solidarity Works!
