Northern California Foods Co Negotiations Update – March 2024

Negotiations have begun with Foods Co in Northern California. We are in the very early stages of bargaining, and additional dates are being scheduled with the company in the coming weeks.

We have secured an extension agreement to ensure the terms and conditions of the contract remain in full force and effect as we continue discussions.

“Our members at Foods Co. work tirelessly, serving those in their community,” said Jacques Loveall, UFCW 8-Golden State President. “We are intent on reaching an agreement recognizing their contribution to the company and rewarding their dedication and hard work.”

As negotiations begin, there are a few simple things every member can do to help us bargain an agreement they will be proud to ratify:

  • Avoid the rumor mill: As questions arise, contact your Shop Steward or District Union Representative with any issues.
  • Update your contact info: If you’ve moved recently or changed your phone number, be sure we have your current contact info to send you updates and any voting details.
  • Sign up for text alerts: We verify active membership, employer and region for everyone who signs up to ensure the right messages are being delivered. Text UFCW8 to (888) 724-5088 to sign up for text message alerts (message & data rates may apply).
  • Button Up: Wearing Union buttons is an easy way to show we are united for a better contract.
  • Follow us on social media to get updates as negotiations progress. We keep members informed via text alerts, emails, and online postings.

Member’s strength and unity always play a pivotal role as we work towards reaching a new agreement. Remain united, support your Union and together, we will prove …

Solidarity Works!
