The settlements signed by Piggly Wiggly Midwest, LLC, based in Sheboygan, resolve cases involving six stores that began in 2009 and were in various stages of litigation. As a result, the parties agreed to seek dismissal of a case pending in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, and Piggly Wiggly agreed to drop its opposition to the enforcement of a Board order in another case. A third set of cases scheduled for trial were resolved by a formal agreement that requires approval by the Board in Washington. A fourth set of cases still under investigation were withdrawn.
The employees, represented by UFCW Local 1473, agreed to accept a reduced amount in bargaining-related backpay to facilitate the employer’s agreement to keep the Sheboygan store open.Congrats to the NLRB Region 30 office based in Milwaukee on this resolve of multiple cases years in the works.
