Strike authorization does not mean a strike.
You should report to work according to your regular schedule.
We understand the union has received strike authorization from Southern California bargaining unit members attending and voting at union meetings.
We want to be sure you know what this means – it does not mean there will be a strike. It means that the union can call one, if they choose. But even then, whether an associate goes on strike or crosses the picket line is up to you. It’s your individual choice.
At this point, the union has not called for a work stoppage. We hope they don’t and would expect the union to return to the table. Our next scheduled meetings are July 10-12, July 17-19 and July 30-31 & August 1.
No one wins with a strike.
Our goal is to reach an agreement that provides a solid and competitive package of wages and benefits for our associates but that is right for our business, too. We need to stay competitive in a very challenging market to do that.
As always, you can get up-to-date information on negotiations from your store manager.Return To Front Page
