Equal Pay For Equal Work Petiton

Service Deli, Bakery, and other General Merchandise workers are paid less than other employees in the same stores, despite working just as hard.

We believe 2-tier wages are unfair, and workers should get equal pay for equal work.

That’s why we’re asking Service Deli, Bakery, and General Merchandise workers to sign this petition and deliver it to the corporate management

Equality * Respect * Our Future

The service deli and bakery are a crucial part of the success of this store – but is not recognized as such.

We believe in:

    1. Equal Pay for Equal Work. General Merchandise Clerks in the service deli are paid far less than other employees, despite working just as hard. Stop making GM Clerks second-class citizens and equalize our pay with other employees.


    1. Respecting the skills and workload. GM Clerks go through extensive training, have specialized skills, and are required to multitask, yet we are paid less than other employees in the store. Respect our skills and dedication with equal pay.


  1. The Future of the industry. Virtually every analysis of the grocery industry points to service sectors such as the service deli and bakery as cornerstones to the future success of the brick-and-mortar grocery industry. Help us help you – pay us what we’re worth and treat us with respect so we can thrive in our jobs.

BREAKING: New England Stop & Shop Workers Go On Strike

From union leaders at UFCW Local 1445:

The coordinated negotiations between Stop & Shop and our local unions in Region 1 have reached a breaking point. As of 1 p.m. EDT today, we have gone on strike. This will affect 31,000 Stop & Shop workers and their families. This strike is primarily over Stop & Shop’s attempt to severely reduce health and welfare and pension benefits.

As you know this is a very critical situation for our members. We will keep you updated as this situation unfolds.

Grocery Contract Negotiations Update – March 22, 2019

Negotiators met with the union’s financial experts to review our pension and benefit plans, as we continued to discuss non-financial contract issues with the corporate negotiators representing Ralphs, Vons, and Albertsons.

We continue to press for an accelerated negotiation schedule, but the corporate negotiators continue to slow walk the talks. The lead negotiator for Ralphs failed to even show up for the second day of talks.

Our next talks are set for April 3rd and 4th.

Los negociadores se reunieron con los expertos financieros de la Unión para revisar nuestros planes de pensión y beneficios, y continuaron discutiendo temas no financieros del contrato con los negociadores corporativos que representan a Ralphs, Vons y Albertsons.

Nosotros seguimos presionando por una pronta fecha de negociación pero los negociadores corporativos continúan avanzando muy despacio en las pláticas. El negociador que encabeza la negociación por parte de Ralphs ni siquiera se presentó al segundo día de diálogo.

Nuestras próximas pláticas están programadas para el 3 y 4 de abril.
