A message from the UFCW International
The following is a statement from the UFCW International:

Yesterday 13 UFCW local unions met with A&P management in initial contract negotiations. The meeting marked the beginning of the bargaining process with the company that seeks to find solutions to the problems the company is facing.

Our goal is for A&P to emerge from bankruptcy healthy enough to serve customers and support good jobs in as many communities as possible. Yesterday’s meeting was a very initial exchange of information.

UFCW members are the backbone of this company and we are very proud to see union members standing together throughout this process. Together, we are stronger.

If you have any questions about the negotiations or bankruptcy process and how it might affect you and your coworkers please attend your local union’s next general membership meeting (June 8th @ 7:30) or ask your union representative.

Again, please email us: or contact your Union Representative for any questions.  Additionally you may also use the Pathmark Update Hotline: 800-522-0456 ext.1355.
