ACME CLOSING ITS BERGENFIELD STORE ON NOV. 7

Local 1262 was notified today that Acme will be closing its Bergenfield store on November 7.  Local 1262 will be meeting with representatives from Acme to discuss the situation and the bumping rights contained in our Collective Bargaining Agreement.  We want to assure our Acme members that Local 1262 will work to ensure that our members are treated fairly during this process and that all protections in our contract are fully enforced.  Please continue to check this web site or our hotline for updates.

SEPTEMBER IS BID SHEET MONTH

The second message is to remind our members who are interested in obtaining full-time positions or interested in promotion to other classified positions to place their names on the Bid Sheets posted by your employer during September. Names can be placed on the sheets until September 30.  New Bid Sheets will not be posted again until March 2018.  The Bid Sheets are typically posted near the time-clocks.  If there are no Bid Sheets posted in your store, please contact your Union Representative.

JANET MUCKSAVAGE ELECTED TO LOCAL 1262’S EXECUTIVE BOARD

At yesterday’s Executive Board Meeting Janet Mucksavage was nominated and unanimously elected to serve as a Vice President on Local 1262’s Executive Board.   Janet will fill the seat vacated when Vice President Kathy Wilder retired.  Janet is a full-time cashier at the Clark ShopRite and has been a member of Local 1262 for nearly 40 years.  She has served as a Shop Steward for 25 years, served on numerous Report Committees during negotiations and has served on our Contract Negotiation Committee for the last 15 years.  Please join me in congratulating Sister Mucksavage.
