Your Union wishes to report that a meeting was held today between ACME, Local 464A and two other Local Unions in the Region also experiencing staffing issues.  The meeting lasted several hours and included input from our International.

Numerous options were discussed and all parties agreed that there would be a subsequent meeting on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 in an attempt to best resolve the problem.

A quick update to inform all our ACME members that the Company and the Union did meet at 10:00 A.M. on Thursday, January 12, 2017.   The meeting dealt almost exclusively with seniority issues.

For our members who came on board with ACME from A&P, Pathmark or any Related Banners, seniority from ACME and the preexisting Banner will be added together to determine seniority among that group.

In order to reduce the tension between ACME and the Union and, further, in order to provide an environment more conducive to meaningful negotiations, we have removed yesterday’s notice from our website.

In the interim, all members should be aware that the Company has agreed not to go into the stores today and make any announcements concerning layoffs or reductions.  The Union and the Company have further agreed that we will continue to negotiate concerning this paramount issue of staffing.

The Company has notified the Union that they are prepared to meet again tomorrow, December 2, 2016 at 10:00 A.M.  As you know from our last update, negotiations broke off on a bad note Wednesday, when the Company was criticized for not making a meaningful proposal in an attempt to reach a contract agreement.

ACME CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE
FROM PRESIDENT JOHN T. NICCOLLAI
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2016

Your Union Officers and Contract Negotiating Committee Members met with ACME today in both a morning and afternoon session.  The Company presented another proposal, which was so far from addressing our needs that it would be a waste of your time to recite it herein.  The Company continues to demand more flexibility in scheduling, is adamant about member co-pay for Health Care and is projecting meager wage increases.

Prepackaged Meat Update from President John T. Niccollai

Prepackaged Meat Update from President John T. Niccollai
November 18, 2016

As all our Brothers and Sisters know, UFCW Local 464A has not looked favorably on the introduction of prepackaged meat by Stop & Shop and others. Our experience has indicated that some companies, such as Pathmark, destroyed their business and ultimately went bankrupt, along with A&P, after the total introduction of prepackaged meat failed miserably.
