UFCW Local 832 and Epic Opportunities Start Negotiations
On February 24, the union negotiating committee—negotiator Sonia Taylor, Richard Charpentier (Portage-75), and Amy Cranford (Portage-71)—exchanged proposals with the Epic Opportunities negotiating committee and began bargaining.
The parties did agree on several of the non-monetary items. However, after much discussion on the proposed restructuring of the organization and projected changes to the Health and Welfare Benefit plan no further dates have been set.
The employer did provided the union committee with information on the restructuring for our review and consideration. Once UFCW reviews the information, more bargaining dates will be set. Negotiator Taylor will keep members at Epic Opportunities updated as negotiations move along.
