ACME-KINGS PAYROLL PROBLEMS

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

UPDATE ON COVID TESTING FOR NON-VACCINATED MEMBERS

As we get closer to the February 9, 2022 deadline for employees either being vaccinated or tested, we continue negotiations with our Employers.   Obviously, as we stated in our previous posting of December 30, 2021 we are vehemently opposed to the cost of the tests being paid by the employee.

POSITIVE PROGRESS ON KINGS AND ACME

CONTRACT RAISES AND RETRO PAY

President Niccollai reported today that as everyone is aware, your Union has been in constant contact with every possible source in order to get our contract raises and retro pay money from Kings Supermarkets and ACME Markets.  Apparently our efforts are now turning out to be successful and the wage raises may hit in as early as the first or second week in July; the retro pay should follow shortly thereafter.
