On Sunday, October 20th, UFCW Local 152 members at Dietz and Watson Logistics in Philadelphia, PA voted to ratify a new contract.

The new three-year contract introduces many new perks for our members. For example, members at Dietz and Watson Logistics will see significant wage increases each year for the contract’s term. Additionally, employees saw no increase in cost-sharing of Health & Welfare for the term of the agreement. All members have earned an extra day of earned time off (ETO) and can enjoy more flexibility when using it.

Congratulations to our members and the Negotiating Committee! This included Assistant Director of Collective Bargaining Dan Ross, Jr, Union Representative Matte Kane, and Shop Stewards Tim Carstarphen, Bonnie “Butch” Spruill, Dwayne Smith, and members Hafiz Haqq and Joe Meade. Great job!
