Teamsters & Safeway Save 700 Jobs
In a move that saved over 700 Teamster jobs and proved that C&S Wholesale is an anti-union outfit, Safeway has taken over the operation of its Collington, MD distribution center. C&S had announced they were relocating the facility to Pennsylvania and not offering transfer rights to the workers. The Teamsters worked to convince new Safeway management of the growth possibilities for the company on the East Coast. Safeway agreed to takeover management of the facility and expand it. The parties have a new contract which was overwhelmingly ratified by the membership and will run until 2022. For more information on this victory click here.
