Lieutenant Governor Robert Duffy is calling on Wegmans and Teamsters Local Union 118 to meet to resolve the expired labor agreement.
In a letter to both parties, Duffy called on both sides “to return to the bargaining table, for the benefit of the local communities and with the intention of finalizing a labor agreement by October 15.”
Wegmans and the teamsters plan to resume negotiations on October 11.
Duffy's office called for renewed negotiations, in part, because the federal government shutdown offices include the federal mediation and conciliation service and national labor relations board.
