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!
