After nearly six weeks of bargaining and negotiating the 6,000 members of Local 23 now have a tentative agreement they can be proud of.
With their contract expiring on June, 26th, Pittsburgh area members stood in solidarity with their brothers and sisters for real wage increases, secure retirement plans, and affordable health care for all workers. Local 23's bargaining committee would not stand down during negotiations. Workers demanded good, family-sustaining jobs and would not settle for less.
Giant-Eagle generated over $8 Billion in profits last year, while workers wages remained relatively stagnant. Workers hope to share in the success the company is expeirencing.
Union members are scheduled to vote on the contract June 26th. There are multiple meeting times where members can learn about what the contract does for them. Meetings will take place at 8:30 AM, 2:00 PM, and 6 PM at the Greentree Radisson Hotel – 101 Radisson Drive, Pittsburgh.
Congrats to Local 23 for showing tremendous solidarity in their achievement!
