UFCW Local 5 Negotiations Update Lucky-Save Mart
January 23, 2017

The Local 5 member prohibition from voting on an agreement from Save Mart’s Lucky Division has been lifted by UFCW International President Marc Perrone. Accordingly, the recent Last, Best and Final offer from Save Mart’s Lucky Division can now be voted on. Since some of the offer was vague and appeared to undermine previous understandings, it was necessary to request clarifications from the company, which Local 5 has now received.

Local 5 must conduct a mail referendum in accordance with the International Executive Committee’s directive under the International Constitution. Local 5 will be sending out the offer, with a secret ballot to vote,onTuesdayJanuary24th.
