Stater Bros. Grocery Workers in California Ratify a New Contract

April 14, 2022

On April 9, over 13,000 members of UFCW Locals 8GS, 135, 324, 770, 1167, and 1428 who work at approximately 170 Stater Bros. stores in Southern California ratified a new contract that strengthens wages and benefits. The deal was reached after months of negotiation and active participation by tens of thousands of California’s essential grocery workers.

Key provisions of the three-year contract include:

  • Significant wage increases
  • Guaranteed minimum hours 
  • Health care improvements 
  • Protected pension

The six UFCW locals released the following statement:

“Today, by ratifying this contract, Stater Bros workers have secured life-changing raises, better health care, and protected pensions over the next three years. After more than two years of risking their lives to serve California’s communities as essential workers, the members of UFCW stood together for their families and each other, and secured one of the most historic contracts in California labor history.”

 “This contract is a concrete and direct result of their tireless work. The pandemic and its deadly impact on our communities may not be over, but the essential workers who keep Stater Bros. stores running have proven it is possible to secure a fair deal when co-workers have each other’s backs. Together, our members are fighting for a better, more promising future and this contract will help achieve it.”
