As we approach contract negotiations with the UFCW Local 7, we want to share a quick overview of what you can expect during negotiations on your new contract. We want to equip you with some basic knowledge about negotiations and how/when we will update you on the progress.

At a very high level the negotiations process has five key phases:
1. Start
2. Proposals exchanged and ongoing discussions
3. Tentative Agreement Reached
4. Agreement Voted
5. Contract Ratified

To help you better understand what happens in each phase, we have created a flyer that explains the negotiations process in detail.

Click here to download and review the Negotiations 101 flyer, which explains in detail each step of the negotiations process.

If you have any questions, we encourage you to speak with your store leader or submit your questions to laborquestions@kingsoopers.com.

The company and UFCW Local 7 leaders are scheduled to begin contract negotiations in mid-November. You will receive a communication from your store leader with exact dates as we get closer to beginning negotiations.
