Dear Union Members,

 

Recently, Shaw’s has announced the closing of four of its supermarkets, one of which (Plymouth, MA) is represented by Local 791.

On Monday, January 14, 2019 the Union and the Company met to work out the closing agreement. This agreement provides that no full-time or part-time employee from the Plymouth location will be involuntarily laid off. 

Currently, representatives from Local 791 are working with the Company to ensure that every member’s rights under the collective bargaining agreement will be ensured.  This will result in some “bumping” by senior employees of some junior employees.  The Union is working to ensure this process will have as little impact as possible on our members.  There will be no loss of seniority or benefits for any member who chooses to remain employed by the Company. 

The Plymouth store is slated to close on or around February 16, 2019.  By then, the bumping process will have been completed. 

Thank you for your patience.  If you have any questions, please contact the Union Office or your Business Agent.

 

Sincerely and Fraternally,

Russell Regan

President
