How the Supermarket Strike Was Settled

March 08, 2004|James F. Peltz | Times Staff Writer

Excerpt:

While most of California slept, the longest supermarket strike in U.S. history was settled in Steve Stemerman's hotel room.

It was 3 a.m. Feb. 23 when Stemerman, the United Food and Commercial Workers union's lead negotiator, and one of his colleagues huddled at the Hyatt Newporter with representatives of the three national supermarket companies whose insistence on slashing their labor costs had persuaded the union to strike.

The five men had been bargaining in various locales at the Newporter for 13 straight days, on this day alone for more than 13 hours. They were haggard, fed up with room service coffee and casually dressed; any need for ties had long since passed.

Moments before they shook hands on a deal, Stemerman had noticed that two of the supermarket reps were sitting on the bed, and he couldn't resist joking about "the union getting into bed with the employers."

Grocery workers vote to strike in Southern California

By Jake Dean and Toby Reese

28 June 2016

Excerpt:

After a 19-week struggle by grocery workers in 2004, the UFCW surrendered to all the major demands of the supermarkets. At the time, the World Socialist Web Site wrote: “This betrayal of the longest work stoppage in the history of the US supermarket industry sets the stage for devastating rollbacks in the working conditions and living conditions for hundreds of thousands of workers who already face low wages and brutal exploitation.”

In the re-emerging grocery struggle, the union is again employing empty rhetoric to appear to oppose the corporations. In reality, the UFCW is working closely with both companies to control the scope and extent of the strike to ensure that it will have minimum or no impact on corporate profits.

While calling for a strike vote, the bureaucracy has kept workers in the dark about the negotiations. The two parties have scheduled ten meetings through the end of July, giving the union ample time to conjure up a sellout deal and avert the strike, which is ostensibly scheduled for sometime in August.



Quote:




Rick Icaza, president of UFCW Local 770, makes the attitude of the union explicitly clear: “We don’t want to strike. We understand the impact on consumers, our communities and our members.” Such statements reassure the corporations that the unions are willing to ram through concessions as long as union dues are paid.

Negotiations Update

Thursday, July 21, 2016

Your Union attended bargaining sessions on July 20 and 21 fully prepared to bargain a mutually acceptable contract. Albertsons/Vons and Ralphs did not share this intention and their proposals continue to fail to recognize your hard work, the companies' profitability and the increasing cost of living in Southern California.

This is not acceptable. We are beginning boycott actions throughout Southern California on Monday, July 25th. These will continue through August 8th - our deadline for obtaining an acceptable offer or calling for a strike. Please check with your Union Representative or steward, or our web site at ufcw770.org/actions for dates and times of boycott actions. Your participation will make a difference since the customers know you and will honor your request.

Negotiations will resume on August 1, 2016. Meetings for all members have been scheduled for August 8th to vote to accept or reject management's offer. Watch your mail for a meeting notice with locations and times.

The next 2 weeks are critical and your support and solidarity make the difference. We don't want to strike but we will if we have to. You deserve better.

Ten cents an hour increase next year and increased healthcare costs? Needless to wonder about pension contributions. Unions ask San Diegons to boycott Von's, Ralph's and Albertson's.

"Help us make ends meet." WHF! The union that represents the grocery workers in southern California pleads for a wage that will allow their dues paying members to just get by? How pathetic is that?

Southern California UFCW Unions Reach
Tentative Agreement With Supermarkets

Members to vote on proposed contract at meetings on Aug. 8 and 9

Bakersfield, Calif. (Thursday, Aug. 4, 2016) — Seven Southern California local Unions of the United Food and Commercial Workers today reached a tentative agreement with Albertsons/Vons and Ralphs.

Members of UFCW 8-Golden State in Kern County are among approximately 47,000 supermarket workers who will be asked to vote on the proposed contract at meetings throughout the region on Aug. 8 and 9.

Details of the tentative agreement will be shared with the members before they cast their ballots. Leaders of the seven participating Unions are all recommending approval.

The Southern California UFCW members had been working without a contract since their previous agreement with the employers expired in March.

For more information, contact Jacques Loveall, president, UFCW 8-Golden State, (888) 834-4448.

@ Our UFCW So. Ca. Local Union Leaders within Locals 8GS, 135, 324, 770, 1167, 1428, and 1442.

There appears to be some confusion behind what in fact is the accurate number for your bargaining unit in Southern California.


Once again I raise this question based on the multiple articles from our Leaders who have alleged that said bargaining unit consists of 47,000, or I've seen 50,000 and I've also seen a button purporting to have 70,000 members in this bargaining unit!

To that point, here's an article from our UFCW I.U. dated May 23, 2014 with their version of this bargaining unit at that time!

Southern California Grocery Workers Reach Tentative Contract

May 23, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C. — More than 60,000 grocery workers in Southern California, represented by UFCW Locals 8GS, 135, 324, 770, 1167, 1428 and 1442, have reached a tentative contract agreement with Ralph’s, Albertsons and Vons.

The agreement was reached after 4 months of negotiations. Workers from across Southern California took action to show their solidarity and earn the support of their customers by wearing “Stand Together” buttons at work.

UFCW members from across the region will vote on the proposal in meetings scheduled over the coming weeks. Details of the agreement will not be released until members have had an opportunity to read, discuss, and vote on the tentative agreement.

The current contract expired in early March, and workers are currently on a day to day extension. Private hedge fund Cerberus, which owns Albertsons, recently made a tentative purchase of Safeway, the corporations that owns Vons and Pavilions. That sale could take as long as a year to finalize because it is subject to Federal anti-trust approval.


Depending on who you want to believe, one thing is for certain, there is a major discrepancy with respect to the accurate number of UFCW Members within the So. Ca. Bargaining Unit in question!

Grocery strike averted: Workers reach tentative deal with Ralphs and Albertans

By: Shan Li

LA Times / August 4, 2016

Excerpt(s):

Southern California grocery workers have reached a tentative labor agreement with the Ralphs and Albertsons chains. The move averts the immediate threat of a strike that could have roiled some of the region's largest supermarket chains.

Rick Icaza, the president of United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 770, said the two sides hammered out a deal Thursday. He declined to give further details until Monday, when union members are to vote on the package.

"For all intents and purposes, it's over," he said.

*******************************************

Icaza said Thursday that both sides compromised, describing the final contract as "a give and take."

"We are satisfied with the wages and benefits," he said. "We are satisfied we are upholding our obligations" to workers.


Well we already know the give and take our UFCW Leaders can accomplish for themselves!,...............

BTW........, speaking of "giving and taking", We must never forget about this multi-millionaire UFCW President!

icaza says he got the companies to compromise more than they wanted to and even though it's not much, the employees will be happy. Hmmmm
Apparently, the union side was dead serious about that "help us make ends meet" petition, because that contract offer might not even meet that objective.

Grocery workers avoid strike, approve contract

Three-year deal affects 10,000 employees at 100 stores in county

By Phillip Molnar | 9:19 p.m. Aug. 8, 2016 / San Diego Tribune

Excerpt:

Grocery workers voted Monday to approve a new union contract that covers employees at nearly 100 San Diego County stores.

The three-year agreement approves modest raises, keeps current health care plans in place and gives employees longer notice about work schedules, the United Food & Commercial Workers union said.

Union officials said Monday night that the workers had voted by a wide margin to approve the new contract, although they said a final tally would not be available until later in the week.

The deal affects roughly 47,000 workers in Southern California, including 10,000 in San Diego County, at Ralphs and Albertsons, which also operates Vons, Pavilions and Safeway stores.

Grocery Workers Reach Tentative Deal with Ralphs, Vons/Albertsons

August 8, 2016

Proposed Contract Goes to Members for Ratification Vote August 8th

UFCW grocery workers in California reached a tentative agreement on a new contract with Kroger Company and Cerberus Capital, the owners of Ralphs and Vons/Albertsons, respectively.

After intense negotiations following the imposition of an August 8th deadline by seven California locals of the UFCW, the federal mediator helped guide the parties to a proposed contract.

“We are happy to say that five months after our previous contract expired, the corporate owners of Ralphs and Vons/Albertsons have agreed to a proposed contract,” said Rick Icaza, one of the chief negotiators for the UFCW and the President of one of the largest UFCW locals in the country.

“This would not have been possible without the strength and solidarity of all the 50,000 grocery workers throughout central and southern California, the cooperation of the seven California UFCW locals and the UFCW International Union.

We also owe deep thanks to the support of consumers and community leaders. Because of the unshakable unity of our membership, we were able to bring these negotiations to a conclusion, and will present the offer to membership for ratification on Monday, August 8th.”

“While we are unable to divulge the details of the agreement until we inform our members, we would like to thank the Federal Mediation Conciliation Service (FMCS) Deputy Director Scot Beckenbaugh and Commissioner Isael Hermosillo, without whom this agreement would not have been possible,” said John Grant, Secretary­Treasurer of Local 770.

“We believe this contract will address our members’ concerns and begin to secure the important role grocery workers play in our community.”

The previous contract covering nearly 50,000 central and southern California grocery workers expired nearly five months ago. Since then, grocery workers have worked without a contract, staging numerous rallies, marches, and events designed to bring attention to their fight and to bring the corporate owners of Ralphs and Vons/Albertsons to the table. Last Tuesday, thousands of grocery workers, community members, clergy, and fellow union members marched across Los Angeles to demand a conclusion to negotiations.

UFCW grocery workers across central and southern California will gather to review the details of the contract and vote on the offer. Results of the vote will be released when voting is complete by the seven UFCW locals.
