New Contract Ratified

We are proud to announce the ratification of a new three year contract for the Southern California union grocery workers working at Albertsons, Ralphs and Vons. It was passed by an overwhelming majority by our members and by all Southern California locals after voting Monday and Tuesday.

This contract provides modest wage increases, retro pay, wage progression improvements, more advanced notice of work scheduling for employees, funding to guarantee health and retirement security for our members.

The contract is the result of months of bargaining that culminated after several days and nights of back-to-back negotiating under the supervision of a Federal mediator. It was tough going, but we were able to achieve our goals and provide for our membership.

We want to thank consumers, working families, allies, community supporters and most importantly our members who showed their unwaivering support and resolve during this fight for respect and fair wages and benefits.

Contract negotiations over Albertsons Ralphs and Vons Pharmacists, Stater Bros, Gelsons and Super A employees are scheduled to resume later this month.
