CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Safeway workers here have reached a tentative agreement for a new contract, a union spokesman said Wednesday.
The proposed 52-month contract has been unanimously recommended for ratification by a worker negotiating committee and affects more than 600 workers at 10 Colorado stores operated by Pleasanton, Calif.-based Safeway.
United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7, which represents the workers, said the deal would give Wyoming workers the same pension benefits and a similar health plan as their Colorado counterparts.
Journeyman workers will get hourly raises of 30 cents per hour and an additional 25 cents per hour for the next three years. Courtesy clerks will get a dime-an-hour-per-year raise, the union added.
