Record Turnout at CVS Contract Negotiations Update Meeting

| April 25, 2018

A record number of CVS pharmacists met at Teamsters Local 727’s Union Hall in Park Ridge on Sunday evening, April 15th to hear the latest updates on contract negotiations and their options going forward despite CVS management’s unwillingness to make any movement during contract negotiations.

During the meeting, the Union provided a brief overview of the outstanding proposals. A key Union proposal is full retroactivity of wages and benefits to May 2016. In contrast, CVS is proposing no retroactivity whatsoever. The Company also wants to remove pharmacy managers from the bargaining unit.

“It was great to see so many pharmacists come together in solidarity against CVS and its draconian proposals,” said John Coli Jr., Secretary-Treasurer of Local 727. “We take pride in fighting for our members and will do so for as long as it takes until a fair outcome is achieved.”

The Union will host additional meetings in the coming months.
