To All Local 371 UFCW Members at Foxwoods
Congratulations! Three and a half years after you first voted YES for Local 371, we finally have received the arbitration award. We know these years have been trying for all of you, and you are to be commended. Your ability and desire to stick together is what led to this positive outcome. While not everything in the arbitration decision is what we wanted, it is much better than what the company originally wanted in your contract, and it provides many needed protections.

The arbitration award is several pages long. Rather than trying to simplify the arbitrator’s decision for you, we think it is best for you to have the opportunity to read it in its entirety. Here you can view the arbitration panel’s decision and the reasons for its decision. In addition, the full contract with all of the previously agreed upon language can be viewed by clicking here.
In the weeks ahead, we will combine the arbitrator’s decision with the other articles we had previously bargained and put it into one contract you can all have at your disposal. Shortly, you will receive a packet of information for steward and rebid committee nominations and elections, as well as a dues authorization form.
