After renewed negotiations over the last few days, UFCW and Rite Aid are pleased to announce they have reached a three-year agreement, subject to ratification, covering over 5,900 Rite Aid unionized employees and UFCW members at 357 stores across Southern California.
As a result of this agreement, which requires ratification by the 5,900 Southern California Rite Aid UFCW members, the UFCW has lifted its call for a boycott of Rite Aid stores and encourages shoppers to return to Rite Aid.
Rite Aid is the only 100% unionized neighborhood drugstore in Southern California and has partnered successfully with UFCW for decades in meeting the needs of union members and customers in what has become a very competitive marketplace. This spirit of cooperation was the foundation for the agreement reached today.
Your union negotiating committee feels it is a good offer.
Information regarding meeting where you can learn the details and vote on the offer will be mailed to our Rite Aid members home.
To all UFCW Rite Aid Members: GREAT work! Your solidarity and determination paid off.
The staff Local 1167 would also like to thanks all those Albertson, Ralphs, Vons, Stater Bros & JBS members for supporting their UFCW Brothers and Sisters throughout this contract campaign.
We would also like to thank all those elected officials, community groups, family members and volunteers who came out and supported Rite Aid members.
