All seven UFCW local unions continue to negotiate with Stater Bros. and we are pleased to report that we have made progress with your employer. We will continue to bargain and keep you informed. As a reminder, your contract has been extended and all terms and conditions remain in full force and effect.
In completely separate negotiations we are discouraged to report that we have made inadequate progress with Albertsons/Vons & Ralphs. Among other cuts, the companies are refusing to increase the funding for the health plan and devastating cuts to the pension. In order to get the best possible contract offer, strike vote meetings were held on June 20th and 21st for members working at Albertsons/Vons and Ralphs only. The intention of all locals is to avoid a strike but we will not settle for a substandard contract.
We have scheduled dates for continued negotiations next week and several days in July.
We appreciate your patience and support during these negotiations. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your Union Representative.

UFCW Local 1167 would like to thank our membership for staying strong & united. You deserved a good contract and got one! We could not have achieved our goals without your support.
We are stronger when we
