Dear Fred Meyer GM Member,
April 8, 2014 was an historic day. For the first time in the Local’s history, General Merchandise members stood up for their rights and a fair contract.
We continue to fight for better healthcare, wage increases and more bargaining power. However, you may have seen a recent memo from your Employer that shows they believe in stagnant wages and a healthcare plan that is more expensive to you. A plan they believe they can modify at any time.
