RWDSU/UFCW Local 875 Sodexo Workers Ratify New Contract
Sodexo workers in Attleboro, Mass., who are members of RWDSU/UFCW Local 875, recently ratified a new contract. The Sodexo workers work at Attleboro High School.
The three-year contract includes big pay increases of 15 to 22 percent over the course of the agreement. Workers will also receive an extra half day of paid time off for Christmas Eve, an allowance for safety shoes and uniforms, and a fourth week of vacation earned in less time. An important win was moving workers into the RWDSU/UFCW health plan, which New England Joint Board President Tina Buonaugurio said,“saves workers significantly, giving them even more of a raise.”
“Sodexo is well known for their anti-union tactics, but workers stood together and won big,” Buonaugurio added.
