Minnesota Medical Sulutions and the Union Negotiating Committee reached an agreement on an extension of the current collective bargaining agreement on Monday June 22, 2020. The employer proposed an extension of the current agreement with bonuses to all employees and an extra holiday. The bonus amounts provided by the employer are sufficient to cover the additional cost of health insurance for employees who are covered under the Union's healthcare Plan. The additional personal holiday is available for workers through the end of the year.
UFCW 1189 currently has two job openings based in its South St. Paul and Duluth office. Interested applicants should submit their letter of interest to President Jennifer Christensen no later than Friday, June 12, 2020. For details and specific information, please click on the links:

I could not be more proud to be your Union President.
You have been presented with challenges none of us could have predicted and you have met those challenges with bravery.
Whether it was in retail, health care, or processing/manufacturing; Local 1189 members have stepped in where needed.
You have done truly heroic things in the past months, and even more in the last week as we grieve the loss of life and join the fight for justice and an end to systemic racism; the situation in our communities has intensified.
What we all have witnessed across the Twin Cites over these last few days is beyond tragic.
I know many of you are rightfully angry about the injustice we have all witnessed. I also know many of you are worried and scared given the unrest we are now witnessing in response—especially those whose stores have been impacted, even destroyed. Please know this—that as difficult as it may be to see right now, we will get through this. Our community will recover, heal, and rebuild. And I want you to know your Union is here for you, and to help you, and address your concerns or questions.
