    Default Teamsters Local 118 and Wegmans Food Markets Reach Tentative Agreement

    (Local 118 Rochester, NY) – After months of negotiations, Teamsters Local 118 is pleased to announce a new five-year tentative agreement with Wegmans Food Markets.

    Subject to ratification by the membership, this agreement provides for the largest wage package of any agreement previously reached with the company. In addition, the Union was able to successfully address significant issues impacting seniority rights, vacations, the use of part-time workers and other areas.

    “Lead negotiator Chris Toole and the entire Union Committee of Stewards did an outstanding job of standing united and firm on their proposals. The historic progress made under this agreement is a testament to the success Wegmans enjoys due to the hard work of our members” stated Local 118 President Paul Markwitz.

    Glad to hear. Wegmans is a very busy market in our area. Always packed and the prices are high. Time to share in the fruits of their labor.

    Teamsters Local 118 Members at Wegmans Ratify Contract


    (ROCHESTER, N.Y.) – Following a week-long contract review period, Teamsters Local 118 members employed at Wegmans Food Market distribution centers in Rochester voted to ratify a new agreement by an overwhelming 80 percent margin.

    The bargaining unit includes warehouse workers, drivers and skilled trades workers. The new agreement provides for a 15.08 percent wage increase over the term, including a first year wage increase of 3.77 percent. In addition, improvements were made to wage progression schedules, differential pay, stricter part-time language and other improvements that are mutually beneficial.

    “While this new agreement sets a new standard with respect to wages and benefits within the grocery warehouse industry, it also addresses the quality of life issues our members deserve. It was imperative that our committee took the time and effort to communicate the many positive changes to this agreement,” said Paul Markwitz, President of Local 118. “The overwhelming approval of this agreement underscores the success of that effort.”
