On Wednesday, June 17th, UFCW Local 152 members at Hanover Foods in Clayton, Delaware stood together and voted to ratify a new contract!
The three-year contract has introduced many new perks for these hardworking UFCW Local 152 members. First, all members will receive a substantial wage increase. Many year-round positions received negotiated market-driven increases, ranging from $0.85 to $2.95 per hour in the first year of the agreement alone! The contract maintains little to no cost share increases on their affordable health insurance and increases the weekly maximum pay for temporary disability.
New language was also implemented throughout the contract to strengthen the rights of our union members, including language:
Congratulations to our members and the Negotiating Committee! This included Director of Collective Bargaining Dan Ross, Recorder/Assistant Director of Collective Bargaining Lisa Sanders, Union Representative Greg Torian, Shop Stewards Valerie Savage, Tyshika Hayes, Dave Johnson, and member Joe Drummond.
