Labor negotiations have been tense between the North Coast Co-op and the Local 5 of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, but a union rep just released the following press release:

After 7 difficult months of contract negotiations, UFCW Local 5 is pleased to announce they have reached a tentative agreement with the North Coast Co-op. Federal Mediator Greg Lim worked with the parties for the past 2 days to achieve an equitable agreement. UFCW Local 5 would like to thank all those who have supported the workers during this time and ask that you continue to shop our local union stores. While, no one side is completely happy with the outcome, which tends to be the sign of a good contract, the two sides have overcome they’re differences and will move together in a positive direction for the future. We thank the community again for all their support.
