Negotiation Update for Fred Meyer Associates


June 24th, 2021

On Tuesday, June 22, the company and the union bargaining committees met to begin negotiations on a new contract for associates represented by a collective bargaining agreement with UFCW Local 555.  Fred Meyer and UFCW Local 555 will determine future meeting dates soon.

Unfortunately, some logistical concerns need to be addressed before we can exchange initial proposals. Rest assured that we remain committed to reaching an agreement that meets the needs of our valued associates while also allowing the company to stay competitive in this ever-changing market.

Negotiations are about meeting your needs and keeping our stores competitive. They also take some time. Negotiating requires honest discussions through which we try to find areas of agreement and work through issues when both parties disagree.

We encourage you to learn as much as you can during the process. We will keep you up-to-date on negotiations with regular updates posted on this website and through your store leader.

Thank you for all that you do for our customers, our communities, and each other.
