The phone calls below were sent out to Save Mart and Safeway members on Friday, July 12, 2019.
We have made significant progress with Safeway/Vons reaching an agreement on several major aspects of the health and welfare provisions of the contract and continue to make meaningful progress in other areas of the contract.
Members' Expectations Must Be Met
Health care and wages at the center of bargaining
Your Union’s negotiating team has been bargaining with the major supermarket employers (Raley’s, Safeway and Save Mart) for new contracts to replace our previous agreements, which expired last October.
Bargaining in Northern California continued with Save Mart and Raley’s this week. Meetings with Safeway have also taken place in recent weeks. We have made some limited progress, however, the process continues to move slowly.
Negotiations with Raley’s/Bel Air/Nob Hill, Safeway/Vons, and Save Mart/Lucky are proceeding slowly. Additional meetings are scheduled this month and we are committed to reaching an agreement which rewards the efforts and hard work of our members.
