Local 727 Files Labor Board Charge Against CVS for Unilateral Changes Affecting Part-Time Employees

| June 13, 2017

Teamsters Local 727 filed an unfair labor practice charge with Region 13 of the National Labor Relations Board against CVS for implementing unlawful unilateral changes concerning part-time employees. After recently instituting a new time-keeping system for part-time employees, CVS, without notifying or bargaining with the union, is now requiring part-time pharmacists to clock in and out manually.

“The union believes this action by CVS is unlawful,” said John Coli, Jr., President of Local 727. “The company can’t unilaterally make changes in the middle of bargaining.”

Indeed, CVS management and union representatives are in the midst of a drawn-out negotiation process for a new contract. After CVS rejected the union’s last offer of negotiation dates, the parties are looking for new ones.

Nothing in this article should be read as the union’s waiver of any legal argument, position or additional grievance. The union does not forfeit its right to make any and all supplemental arguments.
