Dear UFCW 1776 Hershey Member,
I am writing to share an important update with all Hershey members. At the unanimous request of your elected Bargaining Committee, and due to the unprecedented circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic that has repeatedly challenged the ratification process, Representatives will be onsite in the training room today from 1 PM to 5 PM, and again tomorrow from 7 AM to 9 AM to process contract ratification absentee provisional ballots only for those members that are on an approved leave of absence or scheduled vacation next week.
We are honoring the Bargaining Committee’s request in a non-precedent setting manner, due to the unprecedented circumstances of COVID-19, and due to the fact that the contract extension agreement expires on Friday, June 12th and there is no agreement on another extension.
If you are not on an approved leave or vacation, you will be provided time to attend a contract ratification meeting onsite at your plant on Tuesday, June 9. Should you have any questions, please contact Representative Cathy Paninski at 1-800-635-6994 ext. 315.
