UFCW 1189 Kokaisel Scholarship and the UFCW Local 1189 Executive Board Scholarship
UFCW members at S.B. Foot Tanning Company in Red Wing are scheduled to begin negotiating a new Agreement on March 1 of this year. The members at the plant (formerly Local 335) voted to merge with UFCW Local 1189, increasing the size of their local union many times over and increasing their bargaining power at the table. A Union meeting will be held on February 26 from 2:30 - 3:30 at the Red Wing Labor Hall.
Where you work
Your worksite page on UFCW1189.org has everything you need to know about your union membership.
We are currently working with Federal Mediation to get bargaining dates on the calendar. As of today, there are two groups of employers willing to begin negotiations sitting together: Lunds/Byerlys, Kowalski's and Jerrys have indicated they will initially sit together in convenience bargaining. Corporate Cub, Rainbow and Festival have also expressed interest in sitting together. We are looking at dates toward the middle and end of March for both groups. Once dates have been confirmed, we will again send out an update. Don Seaquist, President UFCW Local 1189
