Safeway Bargaining Update May 29 2023


Your Bargaining Committee has concluded another session of negotiations with Safeway the week of May 15th, 16th, & 17th 2023.

The negotiating committee continued to focus and discuss in more detail the outstanding remaining non-monetary proposals. The employer and the union were able to work through a few more of the non-monetary items. Some of the other non-monetary proposals this bargaining session continued to center around the employers’ requests for scheduling, and their need for scheduling flexibility.

While progress has been made, other issues have stalled and consensus on the remaining items has remained difficult to achieve.  While these non-monetary items are important, your committee felt it beneficial to proceed to the monetary phase.  Wage improvements are a top priority for our members, and we will continue to represent the needs and concerns of our members as we transition to the monetary phase of negotiations at our next set of bargaining.

The next bargaining dates are set for June 12,13, & 14th 2023.
