“It’s a basic contract – it’s a start,” said Don Seaquist, president of UFCW Local 789. He said the proposal includes a grievance procedure, seniority language and annual raises.

The 20 Borders employees have been waiting almost two years for an acceptable contract offer; they first won a National Labor Relations Board election to join Local 789 in October 2002.

Workers at the flagship store in Ann Arbor, Mich., ratified a contract in January after a seven-week strike.
