“Ashley Manning, a 32-year-old flower manager at a Ralphs in San Pedro, caught COVID. Her daughter, mother and grandmother got sick too. “We put our lives on the line for this company to earn billions in profits,” said Manning, who voted for the contract. “We deserved more.”
Manning applauded provisions in the new contract to prevent forced overtime and establish health and safety committees in every store.
And with the extra $5.25 per hour over three years, she said, she will be able to pay bills, afford higher gas prices and send her daughter to the YMCA for after-school care.”
“We made history! This was the first time members were part of the negotiations & I believe it made a difference having us there.This is the best contract in the country and I am excited about the great progress we've made including our medical coverage.”
