Osco management has accepted the Teamsters Local 727 Bargaining Committee’s offer to extend the contract covering about 500 Chicago-area Osco pharmacists until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, May 20.
The union’s contract extension offer, which includes full retroactivity, was contingent on the company agreeing to meet with the Local 727 Bargaining Committee and a federal mediator on Wednesday, May 18, and Friday, May 20.
“We are hopeful that the company will return to the bargaining table with a more reasonable mindset that will allow us to reach a fair agreement,” said John T. Coli, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 727.
Local 727 will continue to update members throughout the mediation process.
