UFCW75, Meijer Begin Bargaining for DC

UFCW Local 75 and Meijer met this week to begin negotiations for the Distribution Center; UFCW Local 75 represents over 600 members working at the Meijer Distribution Center.

The Dayton agreement expires on April 19, 2014.  Your UFCW Local 75 Union Bargaining Committee is comprised of:

Darryl Cheatham, DC 805
Kenneth Dabney, Sr., DC 805
Ryan Lucas, DC 804
James Petty, DC 804
Vickie Vance, DC 802
George Young, DC 801

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 progress.

Our next bargaining is scheduled for March 19 and March 20.

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