Tentative Agreement Reached for Local 881 Members at Jewel
June 29, 2022
A Fair Contract Proposal to Consider
The Local 881 Negotiating Committee, which is comprised of your Union leadership and YOUR FELLOW COWORKERS, have spent countless hours meeting with the Company. Both sides were committed and motivated to reaching an agreement in advance of the July 30th expiration of the current contract. We are grateful for the hard work of the Negotiating Committee members. They know first hand what it’s like to work at Jewel, and because of their knowledge and experience they were instrumental to getting to this fair agreement.
We went into the process strongly committed to reaching an agreement that would raise pay, treat long-term members with the respect they deserve, protect and improve health care benefits, and keep our members safe at work. Many ideas for improvements to the current contract were discussed and considered. We believe the agreement that has been reached is more than fair and meets many of the negotiation goals we had.
The Next Step is Ratification
Ratification is where you the Local 881 members decide to ACCEPT or REJECT this agreement. Very soon you will be mailed a copy of ALL the proposed changes to the current contract. ONLY the membership gets to vote and determine the future contract. If you
have moved recently, please contact your Union Representative immediately to ensure we have your correct address on file.
Should you have any questions we continue to be at your service and invite you to contact your Union Representative at 847-294-5064 to discuss any concerns you have.
