UFCW Local 75, Meijer Begin Negotiations for Dayton and Springfield Stores

UFCW Local 75 and Meijer met this week to begin negotiations for the Dayton and Springfield Agreements; UFCW Local 75 represents almost 1,500 members working at Meijer stores in these areas. The Dayton agreement expires on April 19, 2014; the Springfield agreement expires June 21, 2014.

Your UFCW Local 75 Union Bargaining Committee is comprised of:
Hersey Davis, Meijer 241
Patricia Flack, Meijer 66
Brad Meeks, Meijer 102
Pete Singleton, Meijer 103
Emily Stern, Meijer 241
Marcy Stuck, Meijer 112
Allen Young, Meijer 106

Your Union Bargaining Committee gave the Company a comprehensive proposal regarding language and wages. Health care is not a subject of this bargaining for members of UFCW working in Meijer stores across the region. Benefits are negotiated as part of the Meijer Universal Benefits Agreement (UBA); a new 5-year UBA was ratified in 2011.)

We had good dialogue on the proposals, and on a number of issues, and are making good progress.

Our next bargaining is scheduled for March 17 and March 18.

Should you have any questions, please contact your Union Representative.
