    Acme Workers Threaten Walk-Out as Contract Talks Resume

    Acme Workers Threaten Walk-Out as Contract Talks Resume

    by KYW's David Madden

    Talks resume on Thursday in an effort to avert a threatened strike against more than two dozen South Jersey Acme supermarkets.

    Members of UFCW local 1360 voted overwhelmingly last week to give their leadership authority to call a walkout if these talks don’t succeed. The issues in dispute: salary and health care.

    The union wants a deal before Thanksgiving and suggests that if a strike is called, you’ll seek pickets at more than just the 28 stores in South Jersey and Lower Bucks County, where 2,500 workers have been without a contract since April.

    Plans are to set up lines outside Pennsylvania stores that reached a deal with Acme management this summer. The company, in a statement, expressed disappointment at the state of negotiations and hopes for what it calls a “reasonable and peaceful solution.”
