UFCW 324 members and thousands of CVS workers across Northern, Central, and Southern California overwhelmingly ratified a new contract this week.
CVS workers and the worker-led bargaining committee stood together through months of negotiations to secure improvement in the new three-year deal. During negotiations, members signed petitions, held store delegations, and participated in sticker and store actions to engage with customers. Community, labor allies, and elected leaders joined in these actions as a show of solidarity.
The new contract includes wage increases for all job classifications, health benefit improvements, new contract language for a “Safety Committee” comprised of CVS workers, new staffing requirements, flexibility on bereavement leave, and much more!
This contract is a significant leap forward for the thousands of essential CVS workers who stood together for improvements and recognition of their work. It is with the participation of members that this can happen!
