The Teamsters Local 710 bargaining committee met today with Jewel for negotiations at Joint Council 25 in Park Ridge, Ill. for initial proposals.
Trustee of Local 710 John T. Coli began the session by communicating to the employer that all information and issues discussed in every session will be disseminated to the membership.
We will have 100 percent transparency with the membership throughout negotiations.
It is important for us on the bargaining committee to bring all information and documentation back to the membership and hear their response. We want our members to have a real voice in their new contract.
