AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT JOHN T. NICCOLLAI, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2020

CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE

President Niccollai reported today that the Union and representatives of ShopRite, Stop & Shop and Foodtown continued the negotiations process.  Kings failed to attend the session and will be noticed regarding their behavior.

The Union reviewed the approved list of demands with the Employers after commenting about our changing industry and the increased online shopping and home deliveries.  The Union strongly stressed the issues of “hazard pay”, wage compression because of the increasing minimum wage and the needed continuation of no co-pay Medical and a Defined Benefit Pension Plan.   Obviously, we also stressed the need for substantial wage increases.  The entire three pages of demands were reviewed.  The Union contemplates that the Companies will submit counter-proposals at our next meeting on September 17, 2020.

We will continue to post updates on our website as the negotiations progress.

WORK SMARTLY – WORK SAFELY
