COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) UPDATE

President Niccollai reported that the Local Union is continuing to negotiate Bonus Pay Programs for our first responders working in our supermarkets.  At this time, ShopRite, ACME, Stop & Shop and Kings are all on board with programs.  We continue to negotiate with our other smaller companies.  Please check with your individual Employers as to the specific details of the Bonus Program.

President Niccollai reported that this morning he was on conference calls separately with both Governor Murphy of New Jersey and our International President Marc Perrone.  Both leaders are doing an excellent job during this pandemic.  Governor Murphy is working tirelessly to get more safety equipment and testing kits.  President Perrone unwaveringly is pressing Employers for safer working conditions and additional help.  He is also guiding the Local Union in closer communication with the membership during the Coronavirus.

President Niccollai wants all Local 464A members to understand that it is perfectly normal to feel somewhat apprehensive during these unchartered times.  Until the Federal Government catches up with the demand for testing, we must exercise extra good hygiene and meaningful social distancing whenever possible.

Your Local Union is operational and we are prepared to handle your calls at the office or inquiries to our Delegates.

Please work safely and make every effort to protect your health.  Be assured we will get through these difficult times together and our normal way of life will return.
