RE: APPROVAL TO VOTE – JEWEL-OSCO

Dear Brother Coli:

This letter shall serve to confirm that I have reviewed and approved the settlement agreement reached by Teamsters Local Union No. 710 and Jewel-Osco. This letter constitutes IBT Warehouse Division approval to vote the recommended offer.

The terms of the settlement agreement appear to meet the area standards and the resolution adopted by the General Executive Board.

Once the agreement has been executed, please forward a copy to the IBT Warehouse Division, attention Kathy Harman, Administrative Assistant, as well as to the IBT Economics and Contracts Department.

Thank you.

Fraternally,
Steven P. Vairma, Director
Warehouse Division
