Linden Negotiations

2020 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

On December 18, 2020, UFCW 1189 members at The Estates at Linden ratified a new 2-year agreement!  Cooks/Aides and CNA members will receive a 3% increase the first year with a 2.25% increase the second year with all member increases retroactive to October, 1, 2020.  Thank you to Ken Hatch and Cathy Sutherland for their hard work on the bargaining committee!
