Rite Aid Negotiations Update 8/13/2021

Rite Aid is delaying negotiations and refusing to discuss proposals that increase their costs including annual wage increases. You deserve wages that reflect the increasing cost of living and the tremendous risks you take every day.

We have negotiations scheduled for August 24 and 25 and the 3 dates in September. We have entered into a new extension agreement through September 22. We do not expect to extend beyond that date. That’s more than enough time for Rite Aid to make a fair proposal.

Over the next several weeks, you and your coworkers need to show Rite Aid that you will not settle for a substandard contract. We are launching a petition drive for Rite Aid workers to show their support for a fair contract. Rite Aid workers deserve a contract that recognizes your hard work and dedication but you and your coworkers must stand together to make the company give you the contract you deserve.

Rite Aid says they appreciate you. Now it is time for them to show it through a fair contract proposal and wage increases.

Through unity and strength, we will prevail.

As a Union member, your voice and engagement in this contract campaign determines the type of improvements you and your coworkers will be able to achieve in the new contract. Any type of participation counts. You have a right to wear a sticker or button, sign petitions, participate in store delegations and picket lines, etc.

Only with strong member participation will we be able to win a strong contract that provides higher wages, better staffing, improved safety and security standards to protect workers and customers, affordable health care and respect.

Negotiations updates will be posted on this page. Upcoming Negotiations Dates are: 8/4, 8/11, 8/12, 8/24, and 8/25. You can contact your Union representative or shop steward to join the campaign team and help make this campaign for a fair contract a success.
