UFCW 8-Golden State is pleased to announce that we, along with UFCW Local 648 in San Francisco, have reached a tentative contract agreement with Safeway and Vons. This four-year agreement is a big ‘win’ with key improvements.
At the bargaining table we were able to build on the achievements of decades of Union Solidarity, which include the best wages, health benefits, pensions, work rules and job protections in the grocery industry.
Members employed with Safeway and Vons will receive a special edition of our Voice of Action magazine with details as well as voting instructions, a secret ballot and return envelope.
We urge a YES vote for ratifying this agreement, which provides top wages and the finest health care and pension benefits in the grocery industry.
It was the Solidarity of our members and the strength of our Union that enabled us to reach an agreement we can all be proud to ratify.
Thank you, once again, for standing strong with our Union, and as always remember … Solidarity Works!
