Bargaining with Lunds and Byerlys continued today. The parties are very close to an agreement, but unfortunately the Employer refuses to move away from some remaining attempted takeaways. The Union committee is in full agreement that some of these language changes could be damaging to the quality of jobs at Lunds well into the future and the workers are committed to opposing these changes. 

Bargaining will resume tomorrow, 8/5, at 9 AM. 

UFCW 1189 members under the ARGA contracts -- Super One and Mount Royal Market -- ratified their new three-year agreements on August 2.  These new contracts include contract language improvements and wage increases with NO takeaways.  Congratulations to these members and thank you to all negotiating committee members for their hard work and long hours to secure the new agreements.  Details on the new agreements can be found here:
