Local 5 negotiators will meet with Safeway on December 5 and with Save Mart/Lucky on December 6 to begin work on new union contracts. Initial proposals, developed with input from members and staff, will be presented to each company.
The early December meetings will be the first with Safeway and the second with Save Mart/Lucky. Members working at the two companies as well as those working at smaller chains and independent markets are currently covered by signed extensions of the contracts that expired in October.
Be sure to check the Local 5 website often for future updates.
