If it's within the same union agreement then yes your pay and full time should stay the same. If you switch divisions or local union then it will change based on their contract.

If it's within the same union you'll be fine.  Just request to be transferred to the desire location/store.  QFC gets a lot of Safeway employees and I've seen a lot of Ralph's employees from back east transfer to QFC and vise versa.  Your pay should logically be the same if it's the same union.  Seniority will remain as you're still within the company.

If you transfer from a different division BEWARE!! You get to keep your original hire date, but you won't be grandfathered into the current contract! All of your pay will be back to the new hire pay! It took me 9 months to finally get someone in Fry's corporate to put it in writing in an email! 20 years of service reduced to a new hire!! Wish they would of told me that before I made the decision to transfer!!

I never really understood why there something added to contact that allow different Union reciprocity. You would think all the UFCW's would want to bridge the gap and build "One Voice" to assist with receiving better union contacts and retain membership. In reality it seem like local UFCW's are just wanting to keep their structure to keep their Pres/Vp's salaries. Has anyone ever wondered where the weekly union fees go? How large is the strike fund? Do some basic math about how much you pay weekly to the Union and how many Union employees are in your Div., its insane the amount the Union collects and where does it all go?
