Update #20 from UFCW/RWDSU Locals 1500, 342 & 338

Negotiations Continue Between Local Unions, A&P, and Yucaipa

Union Efforts Continue to Focus on Bargaining Best Deal Possible for Members Working in A&P, Pathmark, Waldbaum's, and Food Emporium

UFCW and RWDSU Local Unions are continuing to meet with A&P and Yucaipa in Newark, New Jersey in an attempt to bargain a new contract. To bargain a fair and equitable deal for the members,
Locals 342, 338, and 1500 have united together to be sure the members are spoken for with one voice.

As part of the effort to stay as united as possible, the leadership of the Local Unions are asking the members to stop expressing their opinions about the ongoing bankruptcy negotiations in front of managers and supervisors. Alleged conversations and opinions of the members are surfacing at the bargaining table, and the company is trying to use those positions to their advantage. Therefore, the Unions are asking that members please refrain from expressing all opinions on this matter in front of store management until a conclusion is reached.

UFCW Locals 342, 338, and 1500 are determined to stand together and remain more united than ever. The more united the locals remain, the more power we have at the bargaining table.

Members should continue to stay focused and informed. Please report any rumors to your union delegate. Follow our updates on the union website and our Facebook page.

In Unity There is Strength!
