The last contract negotiating session took place on Friday, June, 24, 2016. Although there was some minor progress made there is still a lot of work to be done.  Many of the open issues that still need to be resolved are significant and both sides are very far apart.  The goal of your negotiating committee hasn’t changed and will not change no matter how long this process takes.  Helping our fellow members achieve the best possible contract is why we volunteered and why you elected us to serve on this committee.

Unfortunately the negotiating session scheduled for June 30th, 2016 was postponed due to scheduling conflicts. We are still trying to find a date that works for both sides to resume negotiations but as of now a new date has not yet been scheduled. We will let you know as soon as that changes.

We would like to extend our thanks for your patience and understanding throughout this process. It has been unusually difficult so far and the misinformation in certain stores has made it even worse.  As always we encourage you to keep in contact with your Union Representatives via phone, email and of course when you see them in your stores.

It's your continued daily support of us on the negotiating committee that gives us the strength to continue this effort until we can reach a fair agreement.

Stay strong, and united for a fair contract.

We will continue to keep you posted as soon as any new dates are scheduled, any news breaks or if anything changes.
