Bargaining Committee applications are open for Safeway and FreshCo members

We’ll begin negotiating the Safeway and FreshCo contract, which expires on March 19, 2022, later this year and are looking for members interested in joining the Bargaining Committee for 2021/2022. Committee positions are open to all members.

If interested, submit your request to jeff.traeger@ufcw832.com no later than Friday, October 1, 2021. Please include:

  • Your name
  • Store #
  • Department
  • Why you want to be on the bargaining committee.

The Union and Safeway Reps will select the committee members based on the information you submit with a priority on your reasons for applying, geographic location, experience and a diversity of departments within its considerations.

We expect that this round of talks will be more difficult than usual because of the changes to the industry as a result of COVID-19 and the six FreshCo conversions since our last negotiations.

Please contact your lead negotiator — UFCW 832 president Jeff Traeger — or your Union Representative if you have any questions or concerns about this process.
