Orchard Park, NY (WIVB) - The union representing Wegmans' truck drivers took its dissatisfaction with the grocery chain's latest contract offer to the skies over Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday.
The spectacle created a lot of buzz. A plane flew over 'the Ralph' and the Orchard Park area, with a banner that read, "Wegmans wants Buffalo to lose."
Protesters gathered outside the McKinley Parkway Wegmans store, not far from the stadium, holding signs saying that Wegmans is being unfair.
Teamsters Local 118, out of Rochester, and Wegmans have been locked in a contract dispute for months.
The Teamsters union claims the company has proposed a new contract that eliminates the pensions of more than 900 of its Rochester workers, and dramatically reduce their compensation package.
Wegmans on Sunday released a statement saying, in part: "The union claims that we are destroying Rochester jobs, which is untrue. We are proud of the 885 jobs for the employees in this bargaining unit. That's up from 800 jobs just 8 years ago in spite of the economic conditions."
Members of Teamsters Local 118 in Rochester will vote on what Wegmans calls its "last, best and final" contract offer Monday.
