Local 1776, Rite Aid Reach Tentative Agreement
United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1776 and Rite Aid have reached a tentative agreement on new labor contracts covering about 2,600 workers in the company’s stores in Greater Philadelphia, the Reading area and Northeast Pennsylvania.
Wendell W. Young, IV, President of Local 1776, said the proposed three contracts will be presented to the members of the union for a ratification vote in meetings next week. The Union and its bargaining committee are recommending ratification.
He said the proposed contracts cover wages, health care benefits, other benefits and working conditions in 190 stores. They would expire on September 14, 2014, and would replace contacts that expired in 2008.
“The negotiations were challenging because they took place during a difficult economic period,” Young said. “But our bargaining committee and representatives of the company persevered. We look forward to building on our relationship and creating a more secure future for our members – one in which they and the company succeed.”
