Smith's Food & Drug Centers Inc. and Union Resume Talks
Jun 25 14
Negotiations resume between Smith's Food & Drug Centers Inc. and United Food & Commercial Workers Local 1564 to replace a labor agreement that expired on June 7. The 2,200 workers in 25 New Mexico stores represented by the union agreed with the Salt Lake City-based chain to extend the current contract through Aug. 2. Local 1564 accused Smith's in a National Labor Relations Board complaint of negotiating in bad faith. The complaint says the company and union were scheduled to negotiate on consecutive days between June 2 and June 7 in order to reach agreement before the contract expired. In previous negotiations, the union agreed to huge concessions, including reduced holiday pay and reduced health benefits for newer employees to help Smith's compete.
