An Update on the Sale of Supervalu Cub Foods

Earlier this afternoon, UFCW Local 663 President Utecht received a letter from UNFI CEO Steven Spinner. The following message from Pres. Utecht was sent out to all of Local 663 membership over email in the afternoon.

I wanted to keep you updated on any news we get about the Supervalu sale with regards to our members who work at Supervalu Cub Foods.

Today, I received a letter from the CEO of United Natural Foods Steven Spinner. In the letter, he stated it was their intention to live up to all the terms of the current collective bargaining agreement as long as they own the stores.

As I said to you earlier, our members with Supervalu Corporate Cub union contracts are protected and in full force. That means your wages, benefits and workplace conditions are guaranteed. The letter I received today officially states that.

We will continue to update you when we are made aware of any changes. Thank you for your patience as we work through these difficult times together.

-Matt
