The three-year contract provides higher wages – including a new premium for part-time workers with at least five years of service – as well as some expansion to current health care benefits. The contract also features a brand new pension program for Dierbergs employees that preserves all benefits already earned and creates a new benefit package for employees moving forward.
“This is the best contact our union family has seen in 20 years,” said UFCW Local 655 President David Cook. “Our members are getting real wage increases. They are maintaining their health care benefits, which are critical to our members, and their pension is strong. This is the difference a good union makes.”
