Red River Co-op Negotiations Update

Thank you to everyone that has taken the time to complete their proposal survey either manually or electronically. If you haven’t been able to complete the survey yet, don’t worry! You still have time. Deadline to complete the survey is Friday July 24th, 2020. This survey is also available online by visiting our website at www.ufcw832.com. Thank you also, to those who participated in our Telephone Townhall meetings on Sunday June 28th.

The Union and the Co-op have set dates for upcoming negotiations. We will be exchanging proposals on Wednesday, August 26th, 2020 and our first dates for negotiations have been set for Tuesday September 1st & Wednesday September 2nd, 2020. We have 6 additional days set for September. You will receive updates from me after each “set” of negotiation dates.
