Local 108 Members Win Wage Hikes, Better Benefits at NJ Supe

June 19, 2007

In a new three-year contract with a chain of mid-sized supermarkets throughout New Jersey, RWDSU Local 108 members won wage hikes, benefit improvement and health insurance for part-time workers.

“Before we negotiated this contract, the employer would try to divide the full-timers and part-timers when it comes to medical benefits. We were able to keep them from doing that during these negotiations,” said Local 108 President Charles Hall.

The new agreement covers almost 200 workers in 25 stores throughout New Jersey. “We’re actively out there seeking to represent workers at more and more of these mid-sized stores. None of them have the type of wages and benefits enjoyed by those workers employed in unionized supermarkets,” Hall added.
