Notice for Teamsters Local 710 Jewel Members, May 5


Thursday, May 5, 2016

Brothers and Sisters,

Your fellow Osco Pharmacists represented by Teamsters Local 727 have entered into an extension agreement with the company. The extension will be in effect until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, May 20 and include full retroactivity to the current agreement’s expiration on May 7. Per the union’s offer, the company has agreed to meet with the Local 727 Bargaining Committee and a federal mediator during the extension.

As a result of the extension agreement, there will be no job action on may 8.

On behalf of the approximately 500 Chicago-area Osco pharmacists, I thank you for your continued support. Your solidarity is a testament to the strength of the Teamsters Union.

Local 727 will continue to provide updates as mediation progresses. Please visit for the latest news.

In Solidarity,


John T. Coli
