Your Union and CVS had our first bargaining session for your new contract on April 5, 2017. At this meeting your Union presented proposals to improve your contract. These proposals focused on the issues most important to you – affordable and accessible health care, living wages and sufficient hours.
CVS members returned thousands of contract questionnaires and the message is clear: the cost of living in Southern CA has risen considerably but wages have not kept up. Affordable and accessible health care for you and your families is critical, as is a schedule that allows you to make a living while also taking care of personal obligations.
We have several more bargaining sessions scheduled between now and early June. Negotiations can be a long and tough process. The outcome depends on the strength and solidarity of the membership. We will continue to update you on our progress. During this time we urge everyone to remain strong and STAND TOGETHER.
