On Tuesday, March 14th, fifty UFCW Local 152 members at B & B Poultry in Norma, New Jersey came together to ratify a new union contract with a vote of 37-4!
Members can look forward to receiving many new improvements with the implementation of the four-year agreement. Firstly, all members at B & B Poultry will receive an immediate general base rate increase of at least $1.75/hour. Furthermore, members can look forward to regular, substantial increases yearly for the contract’s term, totaling about $5.25/hour!
In addition to these economic improvements, a new schedule was introduced which now ends the work day sooner while not taking work time away from our members. This new operational schedule will give our members an opportunity to have a more harmonized work-life balance. Finally, members will now receive additional paid time off and have gained Christmas Eve as a paid holiday!
Congratulations to our members and to those who were on the Negotiating Committee! This included Assistant Director of Collective Bargaining Lisa Sanders, Union Representative Jose Echevarria, and Shop Stewards Robert Vistulli and Axel Ruiz.
