The Teamsters Local 727 Bargaining Committee and CVS management have agreed to meet again on Tuesday, May 10, to continue contract negotiations.
The current three-year contract covering about 150 Chicago-area CVS pharmacists expires Saturday, May 7. The union and management do not have an extension agreement in place, so after May 7, pharmacists will be working without a contract. Under federal law, CVS may not change the status quo of any working condition during bargaining even after the contract expires.
“We hope that CVS will be ready to finally listen to our pharmacists’ concerns so we can reach a fair agreement,” said John Coli Jr., President of Local 727.
