UFCW Local 655 President David Cook has released the following statement after reaching a tentative agreement with Schnucks on a new contract proposal:
I am happy to announce that we have concluded negotiations with Schnucks and have a tentative contract agreement which has the unanimous recommendation of your Bargaining Committee. There will be a contract ratification meeting for Schnucks members on Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. at the Family Arena in St. Charles. We are also anticipating finalizing negotiations with a tentative agreement for Dierbergs and Shop ‘n Save early next week and holding membership meetings shortly after. I’d like to thank you for your patience during this bargaining process. We will make a complete copy of the proposal available online on Monday, Oct. 24.
Stay tuned! The Labor Tribune will be providing updates on this development online and in our print edition.
