Nearly 1,000 Employees Sign Petition to Supervalu CEO Demanding Fully Funded Healthcare

We did it!

In only a matter of days, we gathered nearly 1,000 signatures from Shoppers Food & Pharmacy employees on a petition to Supervalu CEO Mark Gross demanding the company fully fund our health and welfare benefits.

We have earned our benefits. Our union contract requires the company to contribute to a fund as much money as is necessary to pay for our benefits. Supervalu has made it clear that we must fight to protect what we have.

Last week, in a powerful display of unity, we formed small delegations at dozens of stores throughout the region and delivered the petition signatures to managers on Friday, May 17.

But this was about more than health care. By standing united and demonstrating our ability to work together, we have shown the company that we are willing to fight for the fair contract we deserve.

As we negotiate our next contract with Shoppers, we know we have a tough road ahead. We know the company will try to do everything it can to reduce labor costs and take money out of our pockets.

That’s why we must remain united for a fair contract. Last week was only the beginning. We must continue to take action together to get the deal we know we deserve. In the coming weeks, we will have many opportunities to demonstrate our unity. Let’s take every opportunity to prove to Supervalu we are determined to get the deal we deserve.

Let’s Show Shoppers We Are United for a Fair Contract

Local 400 members at Shoppers Food & Pharmacy stores are gathering signatures on a petition to the CEO of Supervalu.

Contract Negotiations Update #1

Thanks to all of our Shoppers members who took the time to fill out our contract survey and to those of you who made it out to one of our recent contract meetings. Thanks to your input, we developed clear priorities together for bargaining our next Shoppers contract with Supervalu.

While no one can guarantee the outcome of contract negotiations, and no one can make promises, we have clear proposals for what we hope to achieve in our next contract:

  • Increase wages
  • Eliminate the hours threshold for raises
  • More holidays + PHs + vacation days
  • Maintain health benefits, improve dental and vision coverage
  • Protect our pension and retirement security

We know we have a tough road ahead. Supervalu will do everything it can to reduce labor costs in our next contract and take money out of our pockets. But we know we deserve better – we’ve earned it.

We must stand united for the contract we deserve. Our membership is strong, and sticking together as a union family is the only way we will win a better deal.

To demonstrate our strength and unity, we are circulating a petition to Mark Gross, the CEO of Supervalu, demanding the company fully fund our health and welfare benefits.

Thanks to your work, hundreds of Shoppers associates have already signed the petition. If you haven’t added your name, talk to your shop steward or download a copy of the petition below. We must show the company that we are willing to do whatever it takes to get the fair contract we’ve earned.
