Thank you to the members who came to the contract ratification meetings and ratified your new union contract. You should be proud of the work you did to secure these rights and benefits. 

Rosa Bolanos, one of the bargaining committee leaders, said she was proud of her first union contract: “We worked very hard to be treated with respect and to negotiate a deal with guaranteed wage increases, paid holidays, paid sick days, and a voice at work.”

Tasha Walker, another bargaining committee leader, is excited to see how her new union contract can change her workplace for the better: “I’m excited to use our new contract to effect change at work. This contract will protect us if we stand together and defend it as a union.”

On the successful contract ratification, UFCW Local 1000 President Ricky Burris said, “These workers did a tremendous job on this contract. They were able to secure $1.65 in guaranteed wage increases over the course of the agreement. Four paid holidays. Up to four weeks of paid vacations. Seniority rights. The list goes on and on. I’m proud of their work.”
