The Teamsters Local 727 Bargaining Committee and Osco management reached a tentative agreement on a new three-year contract on July 28.
The contract now goes to a member vote, which again will be conducted via mail ballot. The Local 727 Bargaining Committee recommends that members vote “FOR CONTRACT.”
Ballots were mailed to Osco pharmacists on Aug. 5. Pharmacists will receive a copy of the tentative agreement, a comprehensive summary of the changes, a ballot and a stamped return envelope. To vote, simply mark the ballot, place it in the pre-paid envelope and drop it in the mail. Pharmacists are encouraged to return ballots as soon as possible to ensure they are counted.
Ballots must be received no later than 1 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 19, 2016, to be counted. The ballot count will take place at 1 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 19, 2016, at the local union’s meeting hall, 1300 W. Higgins Road, Suite 114, Park Ridge, IL 60068. Members are welcome to come and observe the ballot count.
If you have any questions or do not receive your ballot, contact your Local 727 business representative, Zach Frankenbach, at (847) 696-7500 or [email protected].
