Wegmans tells News10NBC that its Rochester-based distribution and transportation employees have rejected the contract proposal that was agreed to by Wegmans and Teamsters Local 118. This marks the second time a proposal has been voted down during contract talks.
This offer included an immediate $1,000 lump sum payment for full-time employees; an 18% pay increase over the life of the six-year contract; a move to Wegmans fully-funded Retirement Plan, and a package of retirement assistance options valued at over $10 million. Wegmans would also pay the New York State Teamsters Conference Pension and Retirement Fund millions of dollars in withdrawal liability to help preserve the benefits already due its employees from the fund.
The union rejected the initial offer on September 30. Both sides went back to the table on October 11 to discuss concerns. On October 12, Wegmans says it had come to a tentative agreement with the union.
We checked with the Teamsters Local 118 tonight. A representative tells us the union has no statement at this time.
