Contract Negotiations Update #6
Federal Mediator Called In
We spent the last week in talks with Supervalu representatives, but negotiations over our next contract at Shoppers continue to progress slowly. To help move things along, we called in a federal mediator. The mediator does not have the authority to order a settlement or contract terms, but a mediator can help us get to a fair settlement. We remain committed to getting a fair deal no matter what it takes. As always, we would rather slowly get it right then quickly get it wrong.
At the negotiating table, we feel the solidarity that is being demonstrated by everyone in the stores. Shoppers knows we are united, but in order to get a fair deal done, we need to continue to show them we are willing to do whatever it takes.
Over the coming days, your union representatives will be in stores letting you know how you can up the pressure on Shoppers to negotiate a fair deal. Now more than ever, we must show Shoppers that we are united for a fair contract.
