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
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.

FROM PRESIDENT JOHN T. NICCOLLAI
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2016

The Company presented the Negotiating Committee today with a second Company proposal in an attempt to reach an agreement with the Local Union.  Although there were several areas of progress, the proposal in its entirety falls short of our needs and fails to address many of our concerns.  A synopsis of the Company’s proposal is as follows:

1.  Proposed language to address inequities in the event of increases in the minimum wage.
