On Monday, April 25th, nearly twenty workers at George’s Market at Dreshertown in Dresher, Pennsylvania stood together to unanimously ratify a new union contract!
The five-year agreement maintains many great benefits, such as their 100% employer-paid health and welfare benefits and pension contributions. It also improves the wage progression scale and provides across-the-board increases for members already at the top of their pay scale. Additionally, some members will also receive significant retroactive increases.
Union Representatives will also have a designated opportunity to meet with new members to introduce them to UFCW Local 152. Since many new members have never worked in a union position before, it’s important for representatives to have the opportunity to teach workers about the union difference! What does a union contract mean? What are the Weingarten Rights? What benefits do union members receive? These are all questions Union Representatives will now have the opportunity to answer one-on-one with new members.
Congratulations to our members, and those who were part of the Negotiating Committee: Director of Collective Bargaining Dan Ross, Director of Field Services Joe Stathius, Union Representative Tom Hartle, and Shop Steward Alan Izes. Great job!
