Negotiations for Your New Contract Continue

Negotiations

March 27th, 2019

Ralphs and the union bargaining committees met again last week to continue to negotiate your new contract.

We had several discussions on proposed language items and continued to exchange proposals.

Ralphs is committed to a contract that will do three important things:

  1. Provide good stable jobs and competitive pay and benefits for our associates
  2. Enable us to operate our stores to meet customer needs
  3. Keep our stores competitive in this changing and competitive retail environment

As a reminder, negotiations are a process that takes time. It is about finding areas of agreement and working through issues where we disagree. It’s about allocating available resources in a balanced way for your wages, health care, pension and other benefits. It’s about meeting your needs and keeping our stores competitive, too.

We have several more bargaining dates in April and early May. We will keep you up to date on negotiations, which we will post on your store communication board, FEED, and through your store leader. If you have any questions during this process, please talk to your store leader.

Thank you for all that you do for our customers and each other.
