“This is a store that has vast supplies of food,” says Flaming. “And they’ve got workers surrounded by food all day long and don’t have decent access to food.” Workers get fired if they eat a single grape, or if they take food out of the dumpster, Flaming says. “It’s just egregious that a grocery store is staffed by workers who can’t eat decently.”
Workers in the Kroger chain are forced to make unsupportable choices, Flaming says. “It’s people choosing between paying rent, buying food and keeping the car running so they can get to the job.”
Stores in the Kroger empire include such familiar names as Ralphs, Food 4 Less and King Soopers.
Happy #MemeMonday everyone!

Workers at CVS 5022 in Reseda, CA have joined Local 770. Despite CVS’ increased anti-union tactics, our committee held strong and achieved their first union victory.

“Through nonviolence, courage displaces fear; love transforms hate. Acceptance dissipates prejudice; hope ends despair. Peace dominate war; faith reconciles doubt. Mutual regard cancels enmity. Justice for all overthrows injustice. The redemptive community supersedes systems of gross social immortality.”
