National Day of Action for Dignity & Respect
Protest at Rite Aid drug stores
Wednesday, December 15
On Dec. 15, Rite Aid workers and their unions will stand up to fight back against management’s attack on their living standards and rights on the job. JOIN US!
Over the last few years, executives at Rite Aid have made bad business decisions that caused serious financial problems at the nation’s third largest drug store chain.
Instead of working with employees to move forward in a challenging environment, Rite Aid executives are trying to make the company’s loyal and hard-working employees pay for management’s mistakes.
Rite Aid just increased its CEO’s total compensation to $4.5 million, but…
• In Cleveland OH, Rite Aid management declared on December 1 that it would impose a concessionary contract, drastically increasing the cost of health insurance to workers;
• In Lancaster CA, management is also trying to shift the burden of rising health costs to workers;
• In Rome NY, management is closing union facilities where workers have a real voice on the job and shifting work to non-union facilities; and
• Across the country, management is not living up to its commitments and is refusing to bargain fairly.
Rite Aid workers from the following unions will lead actions at Rite Aid stores: United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1776 (PA) and Local 880 (OH); and International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 26 (CA).
With support from the AFL-CIO, United Students Against Sweatshops and Jobs with Justice, we call on all union supporters, community and student allies to participate in a National Day of Action on December 15.
