Teamsters OK new deal with Supervalu

Teamsters Local 120 warehouse members who work at Supervalu's distribution facility in Hopkins, Minn., voted to ratify a three-year contract, the union said.  The 723 warehouse workers will see improved wages and working conditions, among other gains.

"This is a good contract. We did what we needed to do as a committee, developed a strategy with the International Union and our Local 120, and it worked out great," Mike Irrgang, a 23-year Supervalu employee, chief shop steward and 42-year Teamster, said in a statement.

The contract includes wage increases in every year of the agreement, protection of benefits and improved scheduling procedures. The agreement will also lead to new full-time jobs, the union said. The tentative agreement was reached after extensive negotiation sessions and a threat of a strike.
