ShopRite Members Secure a New Union Contract!
Updated On: May 30, 2017
PLYMOUTH MEETING – (05/25/2017) ShopRite members overwhelmingly ratified a new contract. On Thursday, more than a thousand UFCW 1776 members from Ammons, Browns, Colligas, Collins, R&R, Zallie’s and Cowhey ShopRites, filled the Union Hall to hear the latest on their contract at two meetings.
The standing-room-only crowd received a presentation on the agreement, they asked questions and, ultimately, voted in favor of the contract. The deal helps to maintain health benefits and creates a committee to review benefit plans for the duration of the contract. Members also received across the board wage increases.
Wendell W. Young, IV, President of UFCW Local 1776, thanked the stewards for their hard work getting the agreement done. He also noted how important member involvement was to secure the deal. He acknowledged the large crowds and talked about how participation sent a strong message to ShopRite.
