DO NOT SHOP YOKE'S! HERE'S WHY:

In November of 2015 a number of Haggens stores were sold at auction due to the company declaring bankruptcy, including the store in Liberty Lake, at which Local 1439 represented employees.  Yoke’s Fresh Markets were the winning bidder on the store, and UFCW Local 1439 reached out to Yoke’s in early December asking them to meet with us to discuss honoring the collective bargaining agreement already in place for employees at the location. Yoke’s has indicated that they have no interest in maintaining the great benefits that the retail grocery employees in Liberty Lake worked so hard to obtain, including their health and welfare benefits, their retirement pension plan, and their vacation and sick leave benefits.

When Haggens took over the store in Liberty Lake from Safeway in early 2015, they did the noble thing by recognizing the collective bargaining agreement already in place, and we requested that Yoke’s do the same decent thing in order for the employees in Liberty Lake to continue to enjoy their hard-earned wages and benefits.  We were disappointed that Yoke’s would choose to replace these well compensated positions in Liberty Lake. 

We here at UFCW Local 1439 believe that good jobs that offer generous benefits and a living wage create great communities.  Please join us in supporting good jobs in Spokane!  DO NOT SHOP YOKE’S!
