Covid-19 Update

President Whille is working daily to make COVID-19 vaccines available to our members.  When he spoke with the Governor, he was assured that our members will be able to get vaccinated as soon as New Jersey has an adequate supply.  At this time, there is no timetable to report.

Making vaccines available to the members of Local 1262 remains our top priority

I am also continuing to ask for our member’s Essential Workers status to be upgraded to First Responders.

Foodtown and Fresh Grocer Members

Foodtown and Fresh Grocer negotiations are continuing as we review the numbers for maintaining health care benefits, sustaining retirement and pension benefits, and increasing wages.  The bargainers hope to meet again next week.

1095 Forms in the Mail

The Fund Office has mailed 1095 forms for all ShopRite & Stop & Shop members.  In addition, Local 152 mailed out the 1095 forms.
