Safeway Negotiations Update

August 31, 2015


Local 5 and Safeway met again on Friday August 28 for contract negotiations. The Local 5 bargaining team made it clear, again, that the union wants a contract offer from the company that is suitable for acceptance by the membership. The contract has been expired since October 11, 2014. Now is the time to finish discussions on the very few non-economic issues on the table and wrap up talks about money. Safeway indicated that they were agreeable to conducting internal discussions required to bring negotiations to a close.

Local 5 looks forward to the company taking the steps necessary to produce a contract offer sufficient for the members to vote on. Your continued support is important to bringing this process to a close. The union will advise the membership of any developments. Please continue to monitor the website & Facebook for updates.
