Workers at CVS Ratify New Three-Year Contract!

Catherine, a Local 881 member from CVS 3940 (#5532) in Chicago counts the ratification ballots.

We are proud to share that the CVS Contract has been ratified! 

On March 8, members from the Local 881 Bargaining Committee counted ALL ballots received. We are pleased to report that the new contract has been approved and accepted by an overwhelming majority of CVS members. The new contract lasts for three years.

The new improvements were informed by the concerns of Local 881 members, was negotiated alongside members, was voted on only by active Local 881 members, and the ballots was also counted by members. This is what Union democracy is all about. 

Highlights of the new CVS Contract:

      • Considerable Wage Increases for ALL members over the life of the contract.
      • Significant overscale annual increases.
      • Suburban members will now have the same contract wage table as other CVS members.
      • Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday added, increasing paid holidays to seven.
      • Improved eligibility language for severance provisions.
      • Expanded Funeral Leave to include paid time off for the death of great-grandparents.
      • Enhanced Language for additional hours to be distributed by Seniority.

Thank you to all the members who took the time to review the proposals and vote. The new contract is effective immediately and you will receive printed copies soon.
