What Can Be Negotiated into a Union Agreement?



Wages, benefits such as dental and pension plans, and job security can all be improved through negotiations between an employer and the union. Improvements in vacations, sick pay, and hours of work are also typically achieved through negotiations. Most agreements also include protection against harassment on sexual, racial, religious or any other grounds.

A collective bargaining agreement is a legal and binding document negotiated by the union and the company. “Negotiation time” is the opportunity for members to put forward their concerns and interests for consideration and possible resolution under the collective bargaining agreement. UFCW Local 832 holds membership meetings before negotiations begin to obtain input from our members.
