On April 20, 2017 the UFCW Union committee and negotiating team met with the company for the first scheduled bargaining meeting. The first set of meetings started off with a round of introductions before each party explained their proposal. The Union proposal, which was derived from a combination of best practices, WFC surveys and results from listening sessions was presented item by item to the company.
