Following votes taken in stores yesterday, UFCW Local 400 and UFCW Local 27 members working at Shoppers voted overwhelmingly in favor of ratifying a new union contract.
The new collective bargaining agreement provides regular raises for everyone as well as retroactive pay for those who missed raises during the long bargaining process. It also maintains our existing health care and retirement benefits for the life of the contract.
The three-year agreement takes effect retroactively to July 12, 2020 through July 13, 2024. Download the highlight sheet to review an outline of all changes to the contract.
“This contract was particularly difficult to negotiate and the process wore on, but with this agreement we were able to secure retroactive pay raises to ensure our members were made whole,” said UFCW Local 400 President Mark Federici. “I want to thank our bargaining advisory committee for their diligent work to help make this contract possible.”
“Over the course of bargaining this contract, Shoppers went from planning to sell off stores to now opening new ones,” said UFCW Local 27 President Jason Chorpenning. “Through all those ups and downs and a global pandemic, we were able to negotiate a fair contract that achieved our bargaining goals.”
