Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Negotiations for your 2022 contract continued yesterday with the second meeting between your bargaining team – made up of your local union leadership and fellow Stop & Shop members – and the Company.
We continued to exchange proposals with the company and responded to their proposals on non-economic issues and rejected most of them in whole. Both sides exchanged partial economic proposals with GWI and wage compression to be determined. An extensive discussion took place around Health and Welfare. We are next scheduled to meet January 6, 2022, prior to that time we will review and formulate a proper counter proposal. Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year.
We will continue to keep you updated after each bargaining session.
In solidarity, Your Bargaining Team at UFCW Local 1459
