At approximately 3:30 PM April 15th, 2010 the Dues Membership and Benefits Department employees of UFCW 1167 turned down the Area Standard Agreement of $19.55 per hour (Experienced Food Clerk Rate) and walked off the job.
All employees here at the local have an outstanding benefits package superior to that of the stores (Holidays, Pension, Full time, 80 hrs of sick leave, 401k, etc)
The Union Office remains open 8:00AM to 4:00PM and our management staff is available to answer contract questions and file grievances. Union Representatives will continue to serve our membership out in the stores as usual. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our membership.
