The contract covering about 150 members includes annual wage increases far exceeding those received by non-union CVS pharmacists. The agreement also maintains the Local 727 Legal and Educational Assistance benefit, which pays up to $10,000 in tuition reimbursement per year for members, spouses and dependents who are full-time college students as well as up to 40 hours of legal counsel per year.
