Update on Contract Negotiations with Vitakraft Sunseed

Members of UFCW Local 75’s bargaining committee met with Vitakraft Sunseed (VKSS) management on June 1 to continue negotiations over a new union contract.

Our bargaining committee has been able to reach tentative agreement on all of the contract language issues, including emergency bathroom breaks and the elimination of the one-day-of work-in-a-holiday-week requirement for receiving holiday pay. We have also made progress on economic issues, including use of paid time off and monthly attendance bonuses.

We have not yet reached agreement on health care or wages. The company has agreed to extend the contract until Friday night (June 5). Our union bargaining committee will meet with VKSS again on Friday with the goal of reaching agreement on these outstanding issues. We will update members after the meeting.
