Here's an update on all current union contract negotiations:
King Kullen & Stop & Shop:
Tomorrow, February 19th, Union Trustees will meet again with company Trustees to resolve Pension and Welfare benefits. As we previously updated, progress continues to be slow, and this has stalled the negotiation process. President Both and Secretary-Treasurer Speelman indicated all Union Trustees will continue to demand that employers pay the appropriate level of contributions necessary to responsibly maintain benefit plans.
A new era began at Fairway Market in September with the introduction of new CEO, Jack Murphy. We'll begin our first negotiations with the new leadership on Friday, February 20th. We expect CEO Murphy and other operating officers to be in attendance for the duration of negotiations. These negotiations are crucial in setting the tone for the future of our collective bargaining agreements with Fairway Market, an emerging company throughout the Northeast.
Negotiations have yet to begin, although our contract proposal meeting is scheduled for Thursday, February 26th at 7PM at the Holiday Inn on West 57th Street. All D'Agostino's members should attend with their proposals for the next collective bargaining agreement.
