August 7, 2014

Negotiations resumed this week between UFCW Locals 8 – Golden State, 5 and 648 and Save Mart’s negotiators.

Talks with Lucky-Save Mart were propelled forward by the presence and testimony of members from the stores discussing the impact of the company’s reclassifications from full time to part time status and wage reductions. Members described the effect of these changes on their work and personal lives. The impact that the loss of full time status and pursuant wage reductions has been disastrous and has led to bankruptcies, foreclosures and personal consequences that are beyond description.

Bargaining will continue through Thursday and will build on progress made in the most recent FoodMaxx talks and the momentum in Lucky-Save Mart talks created by the reality check provided by members from the stores.
