March 6, 2019 - the Union Bargaining committee made up of Northern Union members working at Super One and Mount Royal stores met with the ARGA  Employers (Arrowhead Retail Grocers Alliance) to exchange proposals.  The Union's proposals were focused on increasing the equity among classifications by removing all two-tier rates and benefits, maintaining health care, and improving the wage structure across all classifications.  The Employer's initial offer contained many proposals to remove benefits for long-service members.

Union members working at the S.B. Foot Tannery in Red Wing meet at the Red Wing Labor Hall on February 26 to finalize proposals for changes and improvements to their collective bargaining agreement (Union Contract) which is in effect through April 1, 2019. The Union committee, lead by President Christensen, met with Company Representatives on March 1, 2019, at the National Guard Armory in Red Wing, and presented the Union's proposals.

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.

The weather cooperated for this year's ice fishing contest in Park Rapids.  This is the second year that UFCW Local 1189 join in as a sponsor for the event hosted by the American Legion.  Derby chairman Jerry Benham stated that there were well over 2,000 people on the ice.  Executive Board member Dean Nelson traveled north to try his luck at catching the "big one."  Local 1189 Union members who work at the RDO potato factory in town were also out on the ice.  Congratulations to the winners! and thank you Dean for sending in the photo.
