Negotiations between UFCW Local 400 and Boar’s Head Provisions for a new contract have recently concluded.
Based on current prohibitions on gatherings and COVID-19 best practices we will be unable to conduct a traditional contract meeting. All of America is struggling with ways to address the global pandemic COVID-19. We as a union, and you as an employee on the frontline of the food processing industry, are doing what we can to ensure safe practices to limit the outbreak and its effects.
The Highlight Sheet has been mailed to all members and on Monday, December 28th at Jarratt and Tuesday, December 29th at Petersburg we will conduct a vote on the proposed changes to your contract at both facilities. Both polling locations will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the morning and 12:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the afternoon.
There will be a count of all votes promptly at the Petersburg facility on Tuesday, December 29th at 7:00 p.m.
Masks must be worn at all times during voting.
If you have any questions please contact a shop steward or Donna Waddell, UFCW Local 400 Central/Southwest Regional Director, at 202-674-7305.
