A tentative agreement is reached; boycott ends

TIGARD — This month’s scheduled two-day session with the employers’ negotiation team and the Unity Bargaining Team — joined for the first time by a federal mediator upon request from Local 555 — went throughout the night of Sept. 27. At this time, the union is no longer asking the public to boycott Fred Meyer.

A tentative agreement was reached at approximately 9 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 28. Details of the tentative agreement are embargoed until our members have reviewed and voted on whether to ratify it.

UFCW Local 555 thanks everyone for their support of our boycott campaign. The bargaining team is happy to report that they were successful in addressing all of the concerns. Local 555 recognizes that this would not have been possible without the support of our community.
