Area Union Grocers Reward Workers With More Pay
Union Grocery Retailers in the Twin Cities Metro area and Duluth have been on the front lines of the COVID-19 outbreak. Cashiers, meat cutters, stockers, utility and courtesy employees, pharmacy techs, clerks, and more are tirelessly working to make sure that people in their communities have the food (and paper products) they need. With each and every news broadcast creating a new wave of concern among shoppers, our members in the stores find few moments to pause and take a breath during their day.
And their employers have not let their work go unnoticed. Cub Foods, Jerry's, Kowalski's, and Super One have made the decision to acknowledge their employees - and our Union members - good work with a $2.00 increase and insome cases even more (some employer's overing double-time pay for overtime).
Thank you workers - and thank you employers.
