KINGS UPDATE – RETENTION BONUS 

What is less confusing than contract language that states, “A Retention Bonus of two hundred dollar ($200.00) for all full-time employees and one hundred dollars ($100.00) for part-time employees”?  Your Union is now in the process of working with Kings to get the miscalculation of the Retention Bonus corrected, and working together we will fix the problem.

SHORTAGE OF ADEQUATE WORKERS

President Niccollai reported today that as Frontline Employees in the Food Industry, we are experiencing an inability by some of our Union Employers to properly staff departments.  This situation is occurring because of several factors:

First, there are people still fearful of returning to work because of COVID-19 issues.

Second, workers, especially women, are unable to return to the job because they have children not fully attending school on a daily basis.
