CORONAVIRUS GIVING RISE TO FOOD HOARDING

President Niccollai reported today that our Supermarkets are being pushed to the limit to satisfy the increased demand for food.  It has become obvious that the public is in a panic and we are experiencing food hoarding, with most stores being wiped out of merchandise on a daily basis.  Unfortunately, the Government has failed to stay ahead of this crisis with adequate testing, and it has caused a chaotic health dilemma; we are unable to discern who is ill and who is healthy.  Hopefully, this dilemma will pass quickly and we can begin to isolate and treat those who need medical attention.

In the meantime, our Industry is on the frontline with the responsibility of feeding our citizens.  We are being pushed hard to see that people have enough food to eat.  Finally our citizens are coming to realize the extremely important position that food workers hold in our society, and the fact that our system does not work without our involvement.  It’s about time that we finally get the recognition we have earned and deserve.

To all our Brothers and Sisters, please work smart, work safely and understand that we will get through this crisis.  Your Union is here to answer any questions or problems that may arise because of these circumstances.  

MAY GOD PROTECT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS DURING THESE DIFFICULT TIMES.
