Three months after the contract’s expiration, Albertsons/Vons and Ralphs finally presented their economic package on June 2, rejecting all of the Union's proposals.
Their package disregards the needs of our hardworking members, ignores the growing cost of living in Southern California, and does not give employees any credit for the companies' record profits.
The companies' wage offer is insulting and their benefit proposal would drastically increase employee health care costs and decimate our pension plan.
As a result, all local unions are scheduling strike votes for June 20 and 21, and communications to customers in front of the stores will increase next week.
Please watch your mail for your strike vote notice and talk to your steward or Union Representative about how you can help spread the message to customers and the community.
It’s time to stand strong, because, like everyone else who works for a living, we should have jobs that make ends meet.
