Barneys NY Workers Win Strong Contract After Eight Month Fight

Red Day.600

Late Wednesday night (October 29th 2014) after eight months of bargaining, the bargaining committee reached a tentative agreement with Barneys NY which was subject to ratification by our members. Our strong and dedicated committee and activities by our members both in the store and outside of the store helped us to get an agreement that kept the Union Health Insurance, protected our pension, defeated the company’s attempt to implement a productivity system that was unfair, and ensured that the new downtown store would be covered by our Union contract. We were also able to achieve significant hourly wage increases for all of our non-selling support staff and get increases in commission rates for the first time in many years.¬†

In an overwhelming vote, Workers United members at Barneys ratified their contract.

Congratulations!
