Union-Related Paycheck Deductions to Stop Until Further Notice


December 6th, 2020

We have heard from many associates that continue to be frustrated with UFCW Local 455’s refusal to allow a vote on our Last, Best and Final Offer.

Many of you are also asking about the possibility of a work stoppage and what that means for you and your family. We hope the union does not call for a strike. No one wins in a strike.

If the union does call a strike, the decision to strike or continue to work is yours and yours alone to make.  You have rights during a strike. Your store leader has information that explains what those rights are and your options if you want to continue working during a strike.

What happens next?

Last week, we notified UFCW Local 455 that with the pay period beginning November 29, we will no longer deduct union dues, initiation fees or other union-related deductions from associates’ paychecks until further notice.

What does that mean for you?

If you have been having union dues taken out of your paycheck, effective with your December 10 paycheck you will not have union dues deducted.
