Crucial Wegmans-Teamsters vote Monday
Rochester, N.Y. -- A crucial vote today will impact about 900 Wegmans workers represented by the Teamsters Union.
The union will vote on a final contract proposal from Wegmans that focuses on pension funds. Wegmans says its under-funded and wants employees to transfer to the Wegmans retirement plan. The union argues that will dramatically reduce or eliminate member pensions.
This dispute spilled into Ralph Wilson Stadium Sunday. A plane carrying a banner saying Wegmans wants Buffalo to lose circled overhead. Wegmans refuted the statement and claimed it was an act sponsored by Teamsters Union, who also handed out leaflets at the game.
