On Friday, January 18th, UFCW Local 152 members at Reed and Perrine in Tennent, New Jersey ratified a new, three-year contract.
With the newly ratified contract, Reed and Perrine members will now receive many additional perks to their existing contract. This includes a wage increase each year for the lifetime of the contract, healthcare contributions by the company including an increase in maintenance of benefits, and an increase in pension contributions over the life of the contract.
Congratulations to our members and Committee, which included Director of Collective Bargaining Larry Lucente and Collective Bargaining Representative Ron Whille.
