The union representing roughly 3,000 grocery store employees says a work stoppage set for Friday and Saturday is off after a tentative contract deal was reached with Cub Foods.
According to a press release from an official with UFCW Local 663, the proposed two-year agreement would give employees at 33 corporately-owned Cub Foods stores a significant bump in pay by spring of 2024.
If ratified, the 2-year deal will bump worker pay between $2.50 and $3.50 per hour, according to the release. Union officials say the new agreement is highly beneficial for part-time workers and retail specialists.
