July 11, 2014 - Negotiators from UFCW 8-Golden State and UFCW Locals 5 and 648 met again with representatives of Lucky/Save Mart on July 9 and 10. Additional dates are set throughout the rest of the month and into August to discuss matters of concern for Union members at Lucky, Save Mart and FoodMaxx.
May 16, 2014 - Negotiations have been scheduled with Save Mart, including subsidiary companies, for the first week of June. Bargaining can be a very slow process, so continue showing support and solidarity for your Union. It's the best way to show your employer we are willing to fight for the contract we deserve.
The unions and Save Mart met again on Friday, January 31. During the negotiation session, the company made proposals which still do not recognize the needs of the membership of UFCW 8-Golden State. Your Union has been clear, the needs of the membership must be met in order to reach a contract settlement agreement.
Negotiations continued slowly with Save Mart this past week. After presentation of a comprehensive package of proposals from the union, the company's responses illustrated they still have not taken seriously the needs and concerns our members have expressed are necessary to be met in order to achieve a new collective bargaining agreement.
