Sodexo/Fordham members ratify new 5 year contract 129 to 8!

When Sodexo management started negotiations asking for large concessions from the workers due to financial losses, the bargaining committee representing over 200 members was in shock. After many questions and a lot of research and discussions later, the union and committee decided to meet the company part way. First, the Union reps and committee found savings by proposing that a number of supervisory positions be replaced with union lead positions (with hourly increases). In addition, Local 810 was able to offer a lower cost health plan to the company which represented very big savings. In exchange, Sodexo agreed to continue to pay 100% of the Welfare premium with no cost share for the members. A large number of members received upgrades in their positions and longevity increases. Pension contributions were increased each year. The 5 year agreement was sealed with general wage increases each year.
