With our contracts at Giant and Safeway expiring in only nine days, and after 20 days of negotiations, we remain far apart on nearly every single issue.
We have made proposals to provide wages we can live on, schedules we can depend on, healthcare we can afford and a retirement we can count on.
Both companies actions indicate they have no interest in completing negotiations before our current contract expires on October 26.
It’s time for Giant and Safeway to get serious. We are preparing plans to increase the pressure in the event that these companies do not come to their senses and we will need your support.
In the meantime, we must keep the pressure on by continuing our weekly actions and picket lines at stores. Our next actions are on Thursday, October 24, just two days before expiration. We need you to turn out now. Join us at an action near you and show Giant and Safeway that we are willing to do whatever it takes to get the fair contract we deserve:
Take Action for a Fair Contract!
