Standing with grocery workers at Safeway and Giant

Our UFCW Local 400 brothers and sisters are in the midst of contract negotiations with Safeway and Giant. The members have been doing an incredible job of mobilizing in order to win a fair contract for themselves and their families. For over a year, they’ve been building community support, engaging political leaders, and talking with customers. This is crunch time as the contract expires on March 31st.
How to help:
  • If you are in a Safeway or Giant, find the store manager and let them know that the workers deserve a fair contract.
  • Tell any worker with a yellow UFCW Local 400 button that you support them.
  • Take a minute to call Safeway Inc. Customer Care at 1-877-723-3929 or Giant Consumer Affairs at 1-888-469-4426.  Let them know that you will support us through these negotiations and you won’t shop Giant or Safeway if there is a work stoppage.
  • If you don’t live in an area with a Safeway or Giant, Send a message of solidarity to the workers at Giant and Safeway as they fight to win a fair contract.
The campaign will be ramping up with more actions in the coming days and weeks that we will be sure to share. You can also sign up to join the campaign’s email list here.
