UFCW 832 heads to conciliation with Ukrainian Farmers Co-op Ltd.

October 29, 2019

Re: Negotiations Continue January 6 to January 8, 2020, with Conciliation Officer

From October 16 to October 18, 2019, we met with the Co-operative to continue negotiations.  Progress has been slow, but we have agreed to the majority of non-monetary items.

Unfortunately, the Co-op has proposed several concessions that could take away or reduce some of the benefits and compensation that you currently have. Your Union Bargaining Committee has no intention of agreeing to these concessions.  The Union applied for conciliation and we will be meeting with the Conciliation Officer when we are back at the bargaining table from January 6 to January 8, 2020.  All major proposals remain outstanding.

I will send you another update after our next negotiation meeting. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I can be reached at 1-888-832-9832 or sonia.taylor@ufcw832.com.
