  • Lump-sum compensation for top-rated, grandfathered workers, Qualified Assistant and Department Heads, Specialty and Night Grocery Leaders, Qualifying Full-time and Part-time Clerks and Utility Clerks
  • Higher premiums for night crews
  • Quality, affordable health care for members and your families
  • Health care benefit improvements
  • Retirement security for a better future
  • Language improvements creating more opportunity for you

Special thanks to the union members serving on the Negotiating Committee; we appreciate your time, efforts, and thoughtful consideration of contract issues and proposals throughout this process:
