I URGE YOU TO BE PREPARED IN THE EVENT OF A POTENTIAL WORK STOPPAGE.

To remind you, as a part of your recent contract negotiations, you fought hard for Article XI, Section 11.2 in both the warehouse and transportation contracts which states:

No employee covered by this Agreement shall be required to go through a Teamster picket line involving Jewel-Osco employees, when that picket line is approved by Teamsters Joint Council No. 25.

If you have any questions regarding the potential work stoppage, please visit TeamstersLocal727.org for the latest updates on the pharmacists’ contract negotiations and preparations.

In Solidarity,

Trustee of Teamsters Local 710
