Regarding Hazard Pay
2020 UFCW LOCAL 791
June 29, 2020
Dear Local 791 Members:
I would like to personally thank you for your extraordinary efforts to service the public during this current Pandemic. You have reported to work day in and day out without complaint, to ensure that our communities are supplied with food without interruption or delay.
Unfortunately, despite your ongoing sacrifice, the Company has seen fit to end your Appreciation/Hazard Pay. In response, Local 791 has filed a series of class action grievances against the Company, and we are in the process of filing charges with the National Labor Relations Board. The Companys decision to end your additional compensation is the latest example of how little they care about you - the worker. At the end of the day, corporate greed drives the bottom line.
Local 791 is also looking into several social and public media options to insure the public is well informed as to how Shaws treats its employees. This Pandemic is nowhere close to being over, yet Shaw's continues to enjoy increased sales and profits. Key management personnel have decided to keep these increased profits for themselves.
Stay safe, stay united!
Sincerely and fraternally,
UFCW Local 791
