UFCW Members in Baltimore-Washington Reach Tentative Agreement with Grocers

March 31, 2008 Updated: August 24, 2020

Early this morning, over 25,000 grocery workers in the Baltimore-Washington area represented by the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) reached a tentative agreement with Ahold operated Giant Foods and Safeway.

Workers will vote on whether to ratify the agreement on Tuesday, April 1st.

The members of Baltimore-Washington area UFCW Local Unions 27 and 400 had the support of community and religious leaders, shoppers, sister unions and UFCW members nationwide in their effort to maintain affordable health care coverage and fair wages.

The coordinated effort in Baltimore-Washington is part of a UFCW nationwide unity bargaining program. By supporting each other regionally and nationally, as well as engaging customers and community members in their struggle, grocery workers are improving grocery industry jobs for themselves and their communities.
