The Safeway Agreement will enter into effect retroactively on October 27, 2019 and expire on October 28, 2023. Parallel to the giant treaty ratified today, the main provisions are the most important: strikes for bad conduct of illegal strikers. Strikers who are seriously at fault in the course of a strike may be refused to return to their former workplace. This applies to both economic strikes and unfair labour practices. Serious wrongdoing includes violence and threats of violence. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that a “sitdown” strike if employees simply stay at the plant and refuse to work, thereby depriving the owner of the property, is not protected by law. Overall, this is an agreement that could potentially offer more and less than what might appear in the first place. And as far as the Palestinians are concerned, it is difficult to see that this news creates anything other than frustration, that once again they have been marginalized. “It would not have taken six months of bitter negotiations and the prospect of a strike to reach this strong and fair agreement,” Federici said, “but we hung on and we finally won. Our members were David`s members at Safeway Wall Street Goliaths, and they proved that the power of active, unbeatable and unbeatable union members can actually triumph over the cold, hard money of billionaires. In a conversation, you can hear if the day of the question is used to request an agreement or confirmation based on intonation. “The activism, strength and courage of our members and their willingness to do whatever is necessary for a fair contract means that they receive strong wage increases, quality health care and a secure retirement that their hard work has brought them,” said Mr. Federici.
“Our members were struggling to prepare for a long strike and Safeway/Albertson knew exactly what the consequences would be. This changed the game and led to this strong agreement. Tonight, after a three-hour meeting, we voted in favour of an offer of @Umich. Our strike is over. GEO members and supporters return to our regular duties.

But inevitably, it raises questions. Will the full promise of this agreement be kept? And could other Gulf countries follow a similar path? If the Board finds that strikers who have applied for unconditional reinstatement have been illegitimately rejected by their employer, the Board of Directors may grant a refund to these strikers as long as they should have been reinstated.
In addition, Section 8 (4) of the Act prohibits strike action for certain goods, even if the property is not necessarily illegal when obtained by other means. One example is a strike that would force Employers A to cease business with Employers B. It is not illegal for Employer A to work voluntarily with Employer B, and it is not illegal for a union to simply request it. However, it is illegal for the union to strike in order to compel the employer to do so. These points are examined in more detail in the explanatory note of point 8 (b) (4). In any event, workers who take part in an illegal strike may be dismissed and are not entitled to reinstatement.
