Teamsters Local 727 wants to ensure its Osco pharmacist members stay informed and continue to assert their contracted rights.


“It is incredibly important for our pharmacist members to know their contract,” said John Coli, Jr., Secretary-Treasurer of Local 727. “The union is always here to answer your questions and fight for you.”


Here, the union highlights portions of the contract based on recent feedback and inquiries from members.


Article 2.10: Pharmacists’ Work Assignments or Tasks

“In no event shall a pharmacist be required to do any work demeaning to his professional status, namely mopping floors, cleaning toilets, washing windows or performing “bus boy” services in the lunchrooms.”


If you are asked to perform these duties, contact your Local 727 business representative, Sean McGough, at 847-696-7500 or


Article 5.12: Personal Day Off

“All … part-time employees with one (1) or more continuous years of service shall receive an additional day off each calendar year. This day off shall be taken as mutually agreed between the Employer and the employee.”


The union negotiated for this benefit for part-time pharmacists in the most recent three-year contract, which expires May 7, 2016.

Read this statement to management: “If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or affect my personal working conditions, I request my union representative be present at the meeting.
