A Meadow Lakes member voting on the contract


On Wednesday, July 10th, UFCW Local 152 members at Meadow Lakes in East Windsor, New Jersey overwhelmingly voted to ratify a new contract.

The three-year contract introduces many new perks for our members. With the newly ratified contract, members at Meadow Lakes will see an above-average, across-the-board wage increase each year for the life of the contract in addition to a ratification bonus, as well as preserve their affordable health care plan.

Additionally, language was added to the contract to:

  • give members greater flexibility for earned sick time,
  • give members more notice for the posting of schedules (14 days), and finally,
  • give members the option to reserve some personal days on their return from approved FMLA.

Congratulations to our members and the Negotiating Committee! This included Assistant Director of Collective Bargaining Dan Ross, Jr, Collective Bargaining Representative Ron Whille, and Union Representative Matte Kane, Shop Stewards Peter White, Stacie Chew, Pamela Frost, Treena West, Irma LaMadrid, Richard Bell and member Rachel White.
