CVS Finally Agrees to Enter Federal Mediation
08.15.16 -- After three weeks of ignoring the union, CVS management has finally responded to Teamsters Local 727’s request to enter federal mediation. The first mediation meeting is scheduled for Sept. 22.
Sign the Petition for a Fair Contract!
The Teamsters Local 727 Bargaining Committee will present to CVS management a petition from pharmacists, who are calling on the company to reach a fair agreement on a new contract.
Throughout negotiations, Local 727 will provide pharmacists with timely bargaining updates via email blasts, CVSTeamsters.com and TeamstersLocal727.org. To receive updates in your email inbox, contact Communications Director Maggie Jenkins at firstname.lastname@example.org or click HERE.
03.18.16 -- The rising cost of education is a concern across the nation — a fact that is not lost on CVS pharmacist Rose Hillmara. Hillmara, an 18-year Teamster member, has two children in college, and she says her family is able to make it work thanks in large part to the Teamsters Local 727 Legal and Educational Assistance Benefit.
Remember Your Weingarten Rights!
If you are called into a meeting and have reason to believe that disciplinary action may be imposed, you have the right to have your union representative present during the meeting.
Read this statement to management: “If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or affect my personal working conditions, I request my union representative be present at the meeting. Without representation, I choose not to answer any questions. This is my right under the U.S. Supreme Court decision called Weingarten.”
