Joint Council shows support for Teamster and UFCW in Western Washington

“We are communicating with our members about the issues our brothers and sisters in the grocery retail industry are facing in negotiations. The Teamsters will always stand up for working people, and the fact that these four grocery chains with a combined revenue that is in the tens of billions of dollars annually want to force their employees onto taxpayer subsidized healthcare is absurd and will not be tolerated.” said Rick Hicks, President of Joint Council Teamsters 28.

The current negotiations between the Teamsters Local 38, UFCW and the four major Grocery Chains (Safeway, QFC, Fred Meyer and Albertsons) have been going on for more than six months.
