Look for these buttons on workers in some of our Union Grocery stores, letting customers know that proud Union members are the ones helping them prepare for the holidays! Whether it's food for your feast, candy for stockings, or wreaths to deck the halls, Union grocery stores have everything the holiday season needs! So thank a Union retail grocery worker this holdiay season, and have a Happy New Year.

The Union negotiating committee has reached a tentative agreement with Vireo with a recommendation to vote YES from the entire bargaining committee. The committee decided on this recommendation because they truly believe that this is the best contract we will get with the company through the bargaining process.

This is a major improvement over the company’s last, best, “final” offer presented this summer, and the Union committee fought tooth and nail to keep the progressions in wage scales.

We will have three Zoom meetings to discuss the details of the contract, what a yes or no vote would mean, and how the bargaining process went. The dates and times for the meetings will be:

Monday November 8th 6 PM

Friday November 12th 6 PM

Saturday November 13th 6 PM

The vote is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, November 16th. Please contact Claire Van den Berghe with any questions. 

UFCW 1189 members at United Pioneer Home ratified their wage reopener on September 21, 2021.  Cooks, Dietary and Housekeeping members will receive a 5% wage increase; CNAs and Laundry will receive a 7% wage increase.  In addition, shift differentials have been increased.  Congratulations!
