Members were also updated on the current status of ongoing contract negotiations including Local 727 and DS Waters, Standard Coffee, Osco, and MV Transportation.

Additionally, CVS pharmacists were updated on the latest unfair labor practice charges filed by Local 727 against CVS for the Company’s heinous and unlawful union surveillance activities and attempts to circumvent the Union and deal directly with employees.

Local 727 Funeral Industry members were also asked to mark their calendars for the upcoming Spring C.E. Seminar, which will be held on Wednesday, May 29, in the Union Meeting Hall at 1300 W.

The next meeting will be held at noon on Sunday, May 19 and, weather permitting, will take place in the back parking lot of Local 727.  Dress accordingly!

Please note that during the next meeting the membership will be voting on whether to suspend the Union’s June, July, and August General Membership Meetings.
