Voto de Autorización de Huelga Programado

Nuestra unión llevará a cabo un voto para autorizar una huelga si es necesario, por parte de los miembros del Local 770 que están empleados en Ralphs, Vons, Albertsons y Pavilions.

¿Por qué un voto para autorizar una huelga?

Los dueños corporativos de las tiendas están retrasando un acuerdo y están exigiendo recortes:

  • 3 meses desde que venció el contrato
  • Recorte del pago tope para empleados de Mercancía General (GM clerks)
  • Recorte de sueldos para cajeros
  • Aumento de sueldo para otros trabajadores de sólo 20 centavos, menos del 1 %.
  • Ponen el plan de seguro médico en riesgo de bancarrota

Todo esto mientras los ejecutivos corporativos se están dando aumentos de 34 % y pagando $250 millones a inversionistas.

Ha llegado el momento de demostrar a las compañías que nosotros ya no aceptaremos esto y que ellos necesitan negociar seriamente un contrato justo. Esto les mostrará que estamos unidos para luchar por lo que es justo.

¿Qué significa un voto de Autorización de Huelga?

Significa que nosotros damos el poder de llamar a huelga, si es necesario, a los negociadores en la mesa de negociaciones. No significa que nos iremos a una huelga inmediatamente, pero si mostramos a los propietarios corporativos de las tiendas que nosotros estamos unidos en nuestra demanda de un contrato que sea justo y balanceado, que respete nuestras contribuciones al éxito de la empresa y que estamos preparados para luchar por él.

¿Qué sigue?

Nosotros vamos a votar el Lunes 24 y el Martes 25 de Junio. Después de que contemos los votos, anunciaremos los resultados. Es absolutamente importante que todos y cada uno de los miembros salgan a votar.

Ojalá que los negociadores corporativos regresen a la mesa de negociaciones y negocien seriamente un acuerdo justo.
Si eso no pasa, continuaremos preparándonos para demostrarles nuestra determinación de lograr un contrato justo y que estamos dispuestos a irnos a huelga si es necesario.

Why a Strike Authorization Vote?


Strike Authorization Vote Scheduled

Our union will hold a vote to authorize a strike, if necessary, by members of Local 770 who are employed by Ralphs, Vons, Albertsons, and Pavilions.

Why a strike authorization vote?

The corporate owners of the stores are delaying a deal and demanding takeaways:

  • 3 months since the contract expired
  • Cut top-rate for GM clerks
  • Slash wages for checkers
  • Wage increases for other workers of only 20 cents, less than 1%.
  • Put healthcare plan at risk of bankruptcy 

All this when corporate executives are giving themselves 34% raises and paying out $250 million to investors.

The time has come to show the companies we won’t take this anymore and they need to get serious about a fair deal. This will show them we are united and ready to fight for what is right.

What does a Strike Authorization vote mean?

It means we give the power to call a strike, if necessary, to the negotiators at the table. It does not mean we go on strike right away. But it does show the corporate owners of the stores that we are united in our demand for a fair, balanced contract that respects our contribution to their success, and prepared to fight for it.

What’s next?

We vote on Monday, June 24th and Tuesday, June 25th. After we tally the votes, we will announce the results. It is absolutely critical that every member gets out to vote.

Hopefully the corporate negotiators return to the table and get serious about a fair deal.

If not, we continue to prepare to show them our determination to get a fair deal, and strike if necessary.

  

 


Telephone Town Hall – June 6, 2019

Did you miss the call? 

On Thursday, June 6th at 7 PM, we came together with our union brothers and sisters for our General Membership Telephone Town Hall. We heard urgent updates from the negotiating table and talked about what’s important to you and your Union.

If you weren’t able to tune in for the Telephone Town Hall last week, you have the chance to catch up on what we discussed as a union.

Listen to the full recording of the call below to stay informed: 

 


This is How We Win

770 Members:

We’ve just wrapped up another round of negotiations. While corporate negotiators failed to make a fair wage and health benefits offer, our members have been raising their voices where it matters most: at their stores.

Our 770 Delegation teams at Ralphs, Vons, Albertsons, and other UFCW grocery stores across Southern California have been stepping up to make sure our values are heard by store managers and corporations. Their work is a reminder of who we’re fighting for, and why we’ll win.

Every day, we’re fighting for:
  • Family-Sustaining Fair Wages
  • More, Flexible Hours
  • Health and Retirement Security
  • Job Security in Changing Times
  • Democracy in Our Workplace
  • Better Neighborhood Grocery Stores

This is how we win – by raising our voices together, taking ownership of our union and our stores, and demanding to be recognized as worthy of what we’ve earned.

I am so inspired by these petition delegations all across UFCW 770. To approach management and corporate fearlessly and relentlessly is to be #UnionStrong.

Stand with us and share our pictures.

 

 

 

 

 

We got this,

John Grant
President, UFCW 770


Actualización sobre negociaciones de contrato de supermercados – 7 mayo del 2019

Read in English

Estimados miembros de 770:

Estoy listo.

Acabamos de concluir otra ronda de negociaciones de contrato en las que los directivos corporativos no discutieron ni siquiera UNO de los valores centrales por los que nosotros estamos luchando como Unión. No aumentando un salario justo para ti y tu familia. No salvaguardando las protecciones de atención médica que tú te has ganado. No asegurando más horas y personal para hacer tu trabajo más seguro y mejorar las compras para los clientes que nosotros queremos.

Aquí está el asunto: estas son TUS tiendas. Tú haces el trabajo duro para convertirlas en excelentes lugares para hacer las compras, todos los días. Y además, lo haces con una sonrisa.

Estos ejecutivos corporativos no entienden. Nosotros estamos en la mesa de negociaciones trabajando largas horas para llegar a un acuerdo. Pero estas corporaciones no van a llegar a un acuerdo a menos que nosotros les demostremos el costo y las consecuencias de retrasar un acuerdo. Por eso, mandémosles un mensaje fuerte y claro: meterse con tus compañeros y compañeras de la Unión tiene un precio.

Enséñales el precio de meterse con los trabajadores.

Comparte tu recibo semanal de compras

Te invito a que compartas la página web de abajo con TODOS tus conocidos. Necesitamos que cada uno de tus compañeros de trabajo, tus amigos y familiares envíen su recibo de compras.

Necesitamos poner presión como Unión y como comunidad. Cuando nosotros demostremos que podemos afectarlos en sus bolsillos, ellos van a regresar a la mesa para lograr una verdadera negociación.

Comencemos ahora—comparte tu recibo semanal de compras.

Y ahora vámonos,

Grocery Contract Negotiations Update – May 7, 2019

Lee en español

Dear 770 Members:

I’m fired up.

We just wrapped yet another round of contract negotiations where corporate executives failed to discuss even ONE of the core values we’re fighting for as a union. No increasing a fair wage for you and your families. No safeguarding the health care protections you’ve earned. No ensuring more hours and staff to make your work safer, and shopping better for the customers we love.

Here’s the deal: these are YOUR stores. You do the hard work to make them great places to shop, every single day. And you do it with a smile.

These corporate executives don’t get it. We’re at the table working long hours to hammer out a deal. But these corporations aren’t going to make a deal unless we show them the cost and consequences of stalling. So let’s send them a message loud and clear: messing with your union brothers and sisters comes with a price.

Show the price of messing with workers.

Share your weekly grocery receipt

I urge you to share the webpage below with EVERYONE you know. We need every single one of your co-workers, your friends, and family to submit their grocery bill.

We need to put the pressure on as a union and a community. When we show we can hurt their bottom line, they’ll come to the table for some real talk.

Let’s get started—share your weekly receipt now.

The next round of negotiations will take place from May 22nd to May 24th.

And now we go,

John Grant
President, UFCW 770


Why We Fight

Hardworking people like you are responsible for feeding and caring for your communities every single day. Yet, there’s only a handful of times throughout the year where we celebrate the dignity of working. Today is one of them: International Workers’ Day.

It’s a chance for us all to pause and reflect on why we do what we do, as well as why we pour our blood and sweat into organizing: to make a better life for our families. I wanted to take this moment to show some of the faces of your union brothers and sisters, and recap the core values of this union.

This is why we fight: for each other.

More Hours and Flexible Shifts

Scheduling should provide the hours we need to support our families with one job, the flexibility to enjoy and take care of our families, and accommodate the other priorities of our lives.
Share the graphic

 

Fair Wages to Sustain my Family

Work should provide wage increases that make ends meet and allow us to provide for and enjoy our families and lives—without having to work multiple jobs. Share the graphic

 

Health Benefit Security

All employees should have benefits that provide security in our health. Why? Because our health is our community’s health. Plus, we fought hard for them.
Share the graphic

 

Democracy in our workplace graphic

We are partners in the success of our businesses, not tools to be discarded. Our unity gives us a voice and a vote in both our workplace and our union. Share the graphic

 

Retirement security

We work all our lives to enjoy what comes after. Our members should work in peace, without the worry of what life after retirement looks like. We earned it and we’ll fight for it.
Share the graphic

 

Job Security in Changing times

We understand better than management what consumers want and what works on the floor. By applying that knowledge we can help shape the Grocery jobs of the future.
Share the graphic

 

Better Neighborhood Grocery Stores

Grocery stores are part of the shared public space, and we commit ourselves to creating and preserving strong, resilient communities.
Share the graphic

 

I hope you share these points with your co-workers. It’s a small gesture, but builds to a mighty strength. We need every worker in every plant, shop, pharmacy, and dispensary to know where we’re going. When we look each other in the eye, let’s remember one thing: we got this.


And now we go,

John Grant

President, UFCW 770


Grocery Contract Negotiations Update – April 22, 2019

Lee en español

On Friday, we concluded another round of contract negotiations and I want you to get the latest straight from me.

A federal mediator oversaw the session on Friday, which is a big step to keep the corporate negotiators from Ralphs, Vons, and Albertsons honest.

We’ve made some important progress, but there’s still a long road ahead of us.

Today, here’s what you need to know:

  • On Day 1, we brought the federal mediator up to speed and informed him of our goals and concerns.
  • We continue to advance and advocate for improvements to our contract that will increase our ability to get more hours, pay, and a voice on the job.
  • Negotiations are ongoing. Our next scheduled dates are May 3rd and 6th.

We have yet to make a major agreement on any of our Core Values (you can learn more about these here). But we remain steadfast and strong.

Our goals at the bargaining table remain the same:

  • Family-sustaining wages
  • More, flexible hours
  • Health and retirement security
  • Job security in changing times
  • Democracy in our workplace
  • Better neighborhood grocery stores
The way we win is by staying involved. Make sure you, your family, and your friends sign our petition and share our message on your social media.

Actualización sobre negociaciones de contrato de supermercados – 22 abril, 2019

El viernes, concluimos otra ronda de negociaciones de contrato y quiero que te enteres de lo último que ha pasado directamente a través de mi.

Un mediador federal supervisó la sesión del viernes, lo cuál es un gran paso para hacer que los negociadores corporativos de Ralphs, Vons y Albertsons sean honestos.

Nosotros logramos algunos avances importantes pero aún queda mucho camino por recorrer.

Hoy, esto es lo que tú necesitas saber:

  • El 1er. Día, pusimos al mediador federal al tanto y le informamos sobre nuestras metas y preocupaciones.
  • Nosotros continuamos avanzando y abogando por mejoras a nuestro contrato que aumentarán nuestra capacidad para lograr más horas, mejor pago y una voz en el trabajo.
  • Las negociaciones están en marcha. Nuestras próximas fechas de negociación programadas son el 3 y el 6 de Mayo.

Todavía tenemos que hacer un importante acuerdo sobre cualquiera de nuestros Valores Centrales (puedes conocer más sobres éstos aquí). Pero nosotros nos mantenemos firmes y fuertes.

Nuestras metas en la mesa de negociaciones siguen siendo las mismas:

  • Sueldos que sostengan a nuestras familias
  • Más y flexibles horas
  • Seguridad de salud y retiro
  • Seguridad laboral en tiempos de cambio
  • Democracia en el lugar de trabajo
  • Mejores tiendas de supermercado en los barrios
La manera de ganar es seguir participando. Asegúrate de que tú, tu familia y tus amigos firmen nuestra petición y compartan nuestro mensaje en redes sociales.
