Giant Eagle and Heinen’s Union Reach a Deal
Nov 6 14
United Food & Commercial Workers Union Local 880 President Carl Ivka announced that the union has reached an agreement in principle with Giant Eagle Inc. and Heinen’s Fine Foods on the terms of a new three-year contract covering about 9,000 workers in Greater Cleveland. The parties are trying to negotiate a new contract to replace the one that expired in early September. The contract does not cover all the employees of either supermarket, including employees at Heinen’s four Chicago-area stores in Barrington, Glenview, Bannockburn and Lake Bluff, Illinois, and employees at Giant Eagle’s no-frills Good Cents stores in Brooklyn, Eastlake, Parma and Ravenna. Over the next few weeks, the agreement in principle must be written as tentative agreements, signed, and presented to Heinen’s and Giant Eagle members for their review and consideration. Employees will vote on the proposal via secret ballot, at meetings expected to take place after Thanksgiving.
