The strength and solidarity shown in every Shoppers store in the area over the past several months has resulted in a tentative agreement that has been unanimously approved by your bargaining advisory committee. This agreement, which will take us into the holidays with a strong contract, would not have been reached without the consistent and energetic support of everyone in the stores.
“We earned this contract through our actions in the stores,” said Chartel Scott, bargaining committee member who works at store #2653. “I’m proud of the strength we showed through this long process.”
“Together with our union leadership we stuck together, didn’t give up, and got the best deal possible,” said Keith DeWitt, bargaining committee member who works at store #2646. “Our hard work has paid off.”
You will be receiving notice along with an entrance card for the contract meeting scheduled for Tuesday, November 25, 2014, where your union leadership will present the details of this tentative agreement and you will have the opportunity to vote to accept or reject it. Plan to attend this important meeting to hear all the details and make an informed decision! If you have any questions please contact your Local 400 staff representative. 301-459-3400
