St. Paul Retail Negotiations Scheduled

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
