Unionized workers reject agreement with Tops

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Unionized Tops workers have once again rejected the latest offer from their employer after going on strike Friday to demand higher wages.

Teamster Local Union #264 rejected the four-year deal in a vote Saturday.

The union declined to comment, but say they are available for negotiations with Tops on Sunday.

In a statement released Saturday, Tops said, “At the conclusion of our all-day negotiations Friday, union leadership communicated their firm support for the terms of the agreement and stated an intent to publicly endorse the offer with both media and their membership. Tops remains committed to reaching a long-term contract agreement and is willing to work with union leadership to address the concerns of their members; however, it is evident that the union must resolve certain internal discord before any progress can be achieved.”
