As we all know today was the deadline to reach the threshold of separating 49 people from the Company under the Voluntary Layoff Program with Separation Pay. We failed to meet the threshold of 49 workers and that program is now terminated. I am pleased to announce that the Company has notified the Union that the reduction/layoff of 73 Full-time people will be placed on hold.

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.

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.
