Linden Negotiations

2016 Contract Negotiations

Your Union Contract is a legal document that contains provisions related to workers' rights and benefits. Your contract is the result of bargaining between the Union and the Employer beginning with the Union's initial proposal and followed by negotiations on items that affect your job. UFCW Local 1189 is committed to keeping you involved and informed.  Regular updates will be available online and by email. (If you would like to receive email updates please contact the office to ensure we have your current email address). When a tentative agreement is reached (or when we receive the Employer's final offer) the Union will schedule a time for you to vote on the proposed changes to your contract. After a majority of voting employees approve their contract language it then goes into effect. If you have questions on the process, please contact your Union Representative.

Updates

Contract negotiations continued with the Employer on September 14, 2017.  Negotiating committee members were given copies of the Employer's proposal to distribute to members in each facility.  While it is still early in the process and two additional dates have been scheduled, it is very likely that a tentative agreement will not be reached prior to the expiration of the contract; therefore, contract extensions have been agreed to for all three contracts.  Negotiations will resume on September 19 and we will continue to update the members at these facilities.

A contract survey has been mailed to all UFCW Local 1189 members under the Linden Service-Maintenance agreement, the Lynnhurst Service-Maintenance agreement and the Lynnhurst LPNs agreement.  Members are asked to complete and return the survey to Local 1189 by June 23, 2017.
