NEGOTIATIONS CONTINUE BETWEEN MANAGEMENT AND UFCW

UFCW Locals continued negotiations today with Ralphs, Albertsons and Vons. UFCW Local 324 Exec. VP Matt Bell expressed frustration at the slow pace of the process so far.
“We have yet to discuss economic issues such as wages and benefits. We’re confident we can get a deal if management gets serious about staying at the negotiating table,” Bell said.
Currently, management only made themselves available for negotiations four days in the next month. In contrast, the unions have stated that they are available for talks at any time.
